How can we mobilise more private finance alongside public finance to reach the objectives of the Paris Agreement?

Implementing the Paris Agreement depends on the joint efforts of the public and private sectors to finance the necessary shift towards a low carbon, climate resilient future. This requires a strategic discussion of what business needs from policymakers to leverage investments and vice versa. The event will feature key policymakers and business representatives discussing progress and possible next steps to implement the Paris Agreement’s Article 2(1)(c) (making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development’)
