In the “Climate Finance Insights” series of interviews, produced in collaboration between the ICCG and Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), representatives of governments and financial institutions discuss financing needs, opportunities, and trends as countries work to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement.
These interviews were filmed at the sixth meeting of the San Giorgio Group (SGG), hosted by Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) on May 8-9 2017. Representatives of governments and key financial institutions actively engaged in green, low-emissions finance gathered in Venice for frank discussions on the most pressing policy and investment issues related to increasing global climate action. The SGG is organized by Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) in collaboration with the World Bank Group, China Light Power (CLP), and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
