ABOUT THE EVENT
In 2009 and as part of the Paris agreement, donor countries committed to mobilize $100bn per year to developing countries to finance climate by 2020. The definition and measurement of that commitment has been a subject of ongoing debate with questions about the baseline, what counts as “new and additional,” measures of lending and ‘leverage’ and how to measure whether spend is really for ‘climate’.
At this event we’ll bring together some of the leading thinkers on the subject to assess progress towards the $100bn as we approach the 2020 deadline; and also look at what providers could and should be doing both in their approach to climate finance to maximize its effectiveness in both tackling climate and alleviating its likely impacts in developing countries.
