Webinar I Funding Models for the Energy Transition: Landscapes of Climate Finance

Webinars - By : Louise KESSLER, PhD

 

As countries move forward to implement national climate strategies, National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) and more broadly Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), there is an increasing need to understand how to transform investment needs into capital raising and financing plans. This webinar will look at the insights that tracking domestic climate investment and finance can provide to the climate policy and planning process and implementation. The recent results from the 2019 Edition of I4CE’s Landscape of Climate Finance in France and recent work by IKEM on the building sector in Germany will be presented and compared. Best practices in assessment of current investment levels and supporting an increase in sustainable financial flows will be explored as a basic building block of forward-looking analysis and production of investment plans as a part of national climate strategies.

 

 

Programm :

Moderation: Ian Cochran, I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics

– Introduction: New work on climate finance and investment tracking

– Presentation of New Insights:

– Discussion:

  • What are we seeing in terms of key difference between the investment and financing models between countries? What lessons could countries take away?
  • What methodological improvements in recent studies can help improve policymaking and the assessment of the climate finance and investment ‘gap’?

– Conclusions: Current and future developments – where are we at?

  • Current and planned activities focused on the topic of climate finance of the members of the Contact Group

 

 

About this Webinar Series :

In March 2019, I4CE in partnership with WiseEuropa and NewClimate Institute launched an EU Climate Investment and Finance Tracking Group at an EUKI-supported workshop in Berlin. The objective of this group is to connect and foster the exchange of knowledge and expertise between different types of actors (research, think-tanks, government, among others) on the finance and investment topics related to the low-carbon resilient transformation of European countries. Part of the EUKI-sponsored “Landscape of Climate Finance : Promoting debate on climate finance flows in Central Europe”, the contact group has a specific objective of increasing the participation of representatives from Central and Eastern European countries in these discussions.

 

To continue the discussions begun in Berlin in March 2019, the project consortium proposes the organization of two webinars in November and December 2019. This corresponds with the publication of new research related to landscape tracking work in France, Germany and Czechia.

 

This series of webinars is financed by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). It is the overarching goal of the EUKI to foster climate cooperation within the European Union (EU) in order to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The opinions put forward in this workshop are the sole responsibility of the organizers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

    Op-ed I CAP and climate: let’s not be afraid of obligations to achieve results

    In spite of its “greening” during the previous programming period, the Common Agricultural Policy has had very little impact on greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector, even though they must be halved by 2050. And the CAP’s two flagship instruments on environmental issues – green payments under the first pillar, and agri-environmental and climate measures (AECM) under the second – have come in for strong criticism.

    Green Bonds: what contribution to the Paris Agreement and how to maximize it?

    Adopted in 2015 at COP21, the Paris Agreement triggered new momentum in the fight against climate change and confirmed the global target of limiting the rise of global mean temperature to 1.5-2°C compared to the preindustrial period. Among the objectives, the central role finance has to play in order to achieve this transition has been […]

    French Presidential election: consensus for the new five-year term

    For a year, I4CE has been meeting with the campaign teams of the main presidential candidates to encourage them to prepare their climate program in order to reach the French objectives. In particular, we asked them to prepare their “climate budget”: the State and more broadly the public authorities now play a decisive role in the necessary investments for the climate, and they must anticipate the considerable increase in these investments for France to achieve its 2030 objective. All the more now the European target has been raised. Preparing a climate budget is a mark of credibility and transparency, a test of consistency.
