LEDS GP webinar: From climate talks to climate action – Financing NDCs
Date: Wednesday 22nd June
Time: 2pm to 3.00pm UK time
Register for the webinar here.
The Paris Agreement reached at COP21 in December 2015 set ambitious targets for climate action based on plans – Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) – submitted by nearly every nation. These INDCs provide blueprints for low carbon economic growth, mitigation of emissions and measures to adapt to the impacts of climate change at a national level.
Implementing INDCs, now NDCs, will require major shifts in legal, policy, and financial frameworks to attract the billions of dollars of investment needed to fulfil the stated ambitions. In this webinar, Climate Policy Initiative will provide some answers to the following questions: What are the sources for financing NDCs? What are the most effective policies and instruments to spur investments? How can practitioners get things moving on the ground?
Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) works to improve energy and land use policies around the world, with a particular focus on finance. In this webinar, we share our insights on these questions based on our support over the years to decision makers through in-depth analysis on what works and what does not.
