5th edition of the Climate Finance Day
Friday, November 29th, 2019 | Palais Brongniart, Paris
Time is running out to combat climate change and preserve natural resources for future generations.
Since COP21 and the Paris Agreement, the financial community has taken important steps forward to tackle climate change. Concrete progress has been achieved to mobilize capital flows towards a low-carbon transition and a more resilient growth on regulation, risk management, green technologies and infrastructure, and new financing tools and products.
But it is crucial for accelerating climate action to ensure it is inclusive. To make the transition to a low carbon economy successful and acceptable by all, it is essential to consider its social impacts and financial actors have a role to play to ensure that the social implications of the transition are taken into account and well managed.
The 5th edition of the Climate Finance Day will be dedicated to the theme “Financing a Just Transition”.
It will take stock on the main achievements to date and showcase the most recent initiatives
and innovations of the financial sector to accelerate the adoption of forward-looking strategies for a fast-changing world and a more inclusive economy, both for developing and developed countries.
