Climate Investment Platform: Facilitating Energy Transition for Green Recovery Through Emerging Models of Climate Finance
September 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Join us for a high-level discussion on how the Climate Investment Platform is facilitating the energy transition for a green recovery through new climate finance mechanisms.
The economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have presented countries with a tremendous opportunity to accelerate the energy transition for a green recovery and deliver on Sustainable Development Goals.
The Climate Investment Platform (CIP) is a new way to address these challenges by catalysing climate finance for clean energy, channelling it where it is most needed, and maximising its impacts.
The pandemic and climate change are closely intertwined. Such multi-faceted crises call for a comprehensive response from governments, the private sector, and civil society. As the pressure on development finance increases to help countries cope with COVID-19, the CIP is helping put forward an integrated response by supporting countries attract both the public and private funds they need for their green recovery.
The Denmark and Ethiopia permanent missions to the United Nations, co-chairs of the Energy Transition Coalition, will host on 16 September an online high-level discussion on these issues. During this event, representatives from countries currently engaged with the CIP will highlight how this platform is advancing their climate change and clean energy agendas.
This webinar is part of a series of Energy Transition Coalition events at the one-year mark since the Climate Action Summit. You can find the full programme of the series here.
