This article examines fair and equitable benefit-sharing in the context of climate finance. Benefit-sharing and climate finance are both complex, heterogeneous and fast-developing fields. Yet despite the increasing use of benefit-sharing in climate change, it lacks clear conceptualisation. After explaining the subject matter and the intersection between them, the article seeks to establish what benefit-sharing does or might mean in climate finance, and questions the content and value of universalised norms in this context.
