This online event will discuss the role of civil society organizations – CSOs in implementing green budgeting tools in the European context.  

 

Green budgeting helps to assess the consistency of public spending with country’s environmental and climate targets, it improves the transparency of government action for parliamentarians, civil society and citizens.

 

Specifically, in this event, 4 organizations (Umanotera – Slovenia, CAN-France, IDEA Foundation – Luxembourg and I4CE – France) will share their best practices, and national challenges in supporting the move towards a greener national budget.  

 

This discussion will support the progress of green budgeting practices in Europe by promoting a shared understanding by national CSOs throughout Europe, so that individual institutions can launch or contribute to debates on the greening of public finance in their respective countries. 

 

If the topic gathers enough interest from EU CSOs, an online platform could be created that could be used by CSOs to assess governments’ practices, gather resources on green budgeting, and exchange best practices.

    2023’s resolutions for a reform of development finance

    2022 ended up on a consensus that the global financial architecture is no longer “fit for purpose”. In other words, the financial ecosystem created post-war to support international development – at the centre of which are the IMF and the World Bank who were joined later by other international public financial institutions – wasn’t designed to address the multiplicity of challenges the world is facing today, foremost among which climate change. Time is running, and the good news is that 2023 is set up to be a busy year with key events setting the milestones for a reform of the international financial architecture, including a Paris Summit in June. The year will close at COP 28, where we will officially take stock of current achievements.

    Here’s to an impactful new year for financial reform

    2023 will be busy with many events organised to address different parts of the financial architecture reform, including a Paris Summit in June. Alice Pauthier from [i4ce] tells you more about this agenda and identifies two conditions for a successful reform process. First, it has to be led by countries’ financing needs… wheras we are still lacking a granular analysis of countries’ investment needs for a sustainable development. Second, it has to be guided by the objective of maximising the impact of public finance. What we should count is the impact of public finance on the transition and not only volumes.

    The limitations of voluntary climate commitments from private financial actors

    Private finance will not fund the transition without a stronger commitment from public authorities.
    For several years, and particularly since COP 26, considerable time and attention has been dedicated to the subject of voluntary commitments from private financial actors. These commitments, made within the framework of international initiatives, should in principle enable private finance to be mobilized for the transition to a carbon neutral economy.
