In December 2015, world leaders reached a historic climate agreement at COP21 in Paris, sending a clear signal to governments and businesses to accelerate their efforts to decarbonize their economies, supply chains and business models. Now it’s time to move from diplomacy to implementation – and this involves both understanding the far-reaching implications and open issues of the Paris Agreement, and identifying ways to align public and private money most effectively to finance the transition towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient future. This is why understanding where the world stands in relation to its low-carbon and climate-resilient investment goals is a more urgent task than ever. This webinar will reveal who is investing in low-carbon, resilient growth, where and how, and also provides an indication of progress toward the levels of investment needed to reach globally agreed temperature goals. It will also draw on findings from the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance to provide concrete examples on how to finance climate action on the ground, indicating pathways towards the implementation of countries’ National Determined Contributions.
This Webinar will be given by Barbara Buchner, Senior Director of Climate Policy Initiative.
