Free Webinar: Climate and Sustainable Development Finance – Can We Bank on It?

17 Aug, Bonn, Germany http://bit.ly/SDCA-3 3:15 PM - 4:15 PM
Organized by UNSSC Knowledge Centre For Sustainable Development, Bonn
Posted by UNSSC KCSD, UNSSC

Boosting climate and sustainable development finance for a low-emission, resilient future – while creating the necessary investment culture – will be key to meeting the long term goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement and the 2030 Agenda. More action is needed as transformational change, already underway, takes hold in capital and financial markets across the globe. Public and private finance must be channeled towards sustainable development business models in emerging and developed economies. In doing so, business value will become the new norm in securing a clean and sustainable future for all. Join us for the third session of our 7-episode webinar series "SD Talks Special Series on Climate Action", which will discuss what is being done to get to the future we all want. It will explain current climate and development finance and investment policy and action, and will outline some opportunities and challenges.

Organised by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development in partnership with the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the webinar will feature Grant Kirkman, who leads relations management for the Sustainable Development Mechanisms & Finance at the UN climate change secretariat, and Liza Leclerc, who leads the secretariat support to the Standing Committee on Finance, the Financial Mechanism and the Adaptation Fund at UNFCCC.
