As part of the Copenhagen Accord, produced in 2009 at COP15, developed countries committed to:
“a goal of mobilizing jointly USD 100 billion dollars a year by 2020 to address the needs of developing countries. This funding will come from a wide variety of sources, public and private, bilateral and multilateral, including alternative sources of finance (UNFCCC, 2009).”
At subsequent COPs – Paris in 2015 and Katowice in 2018 – Parties agreed to maintain the $100 billion a year target until 2025. Unfortunately, this target has been consistently missed, and is not expected to be met until 2023 at the earliest.
Join the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance and ODI for an examination of their recent study, ‘A Fair Share of Climate Finance?’ which seeks to apportion responsibility for the funding gap. We’ll also be looking at which additional countries should be providing climate finance in the future.
Where/when? Wednesday 14th September, 3pm-4pm CET. Register here.
Speakers: Sarah Colenbrander (ODI), Carina Bachofen (IFRC Climate Centre), and more to be announced
