UN Climate Change Conference Dec 2014 (COP 20) – Official Side Event
05 Dec 2014 18:30 - 20:00
Venue: Caral Room (130)
Incentivising the flow of large scale private sector finance from 2015 – 2020 and beyond is critical if catastrophic climate change is to be avoided, deforestation reduction targets are to be met, and global warming is to be kept below 2 degrees Celsius.
In order to meet deforestation targets and keep to this 2 degree warming trajectory then approximately $12 billion of investment will need to flow to sustainable landscapes initiatives, including REDD+, a large proportion of which is expected to come from private sector sources.
To rapidly scale results based financing for REDD+ to the levels needed will require innovative approaches to unlock the potential of new sources of finance. The Green Climate Fund and other multilateral funding bodies have an important role to play in developing ways to incentivize the flow of additional public and private sector finance into REDD+ activities.
This interactive panel discussion with speakers from organisations including Althelia Ecosphere, the Green Climate Fund, the Global Canopy Programme, the Climate Markets and Investment Association, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Inter-American Development Bank. It will provide insights on the deployment of jurisdictional level solutions which would allow the flow of public and private sector capital at scale.
