The $100bn Roadmap cannot be a simple accounting exercise to show that the target has already been met. To be credible, it must:

- identify means to substantially increase new and additional public finance flows;
- address the imbalance between resources for adaptation and mitigation; and
- ensure a conservative approach is taken to any consideration of private finance leverage ratios.
