Policy and Finance to Achieve Transformation

This side event will discuss solutions on how to get finance to flow for the next wave of investment addressing climate change.

Mobilising private capital for the most challenging sectors, markets, and technologies

Developing ambitious policies and mobilising financing are needed to achieve the transformation towards low carbon climate resilient development pathways.

Although investments in climate change mitigation and adaptation are flowing, meeting the Paris Agreement goals will require a huge increase in finance. A substantial portion will need to come from the private sector. While the business case for investment in large-scale wind and solar technologies is growing, sectors such as adaptation, land use, distributed solar, geothermal, Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), and energy efficiency face a range of barriers preventing greater private sector involvement. Enabling environments and conducive policy frameworks can help to unlock the transformation needed across the economy. 

This side event, hosted jointly by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), and the Observatoire du Sahara et du Sahel (OSS), presents successful approaches and innovative models to achieve transformation. High-level leaders from international organisations, government, financial institutions, and the private sector will discuss emerging solutions on how to get finance to flow for the next wave of investment addressing climate change and implementing the Paris Agreement.

Only for accredited participants.
