The 2023 adaptation finance gap update and emerging lessons and best practice on how to bridge the gap

Le rapport sur l'écart entre les besoins et les perspectives en matière d'adaptation aux changements climatiques est le baromètre annuel de référence sur les ressources nécessaires et effectivement mobilisées pour l’adaptation dans le monde. Cette question, longtemps uniquement posée dans les pays en développement s’affirme aussi comme un enjeu critique dans les pays de l’OCDE.

    Closed event on ambitious alignment with the Paris Agreement
    The window of opportunity to remain below 1.5°C is rapidly closing. Public development banks (PDBs) need not only to increase the volume of climate finance, but also maximize the climate transformation achieved through their operations. Paris alignment commitments are crucial in this regard, but implementation requires continuous improvement and adjustments to adapt to an evolving context and real-world needs. The session will discuss best practices and shortcomings of existing approaches, drawing key directions for further progress towards a financial international architecture that sufficiently addresses our mounting climate crisis.

    Launch of the first edition of the EU Climate Investment Deficit report
    The European Green Deal has been a top priority for the European Union. Since 2019, EU institutions set ambitious targets, adopted bold carbon pricing reforms, and passed hotly debated legislation. The Green Deal’s success will be measured by its capacity to trigger structural changes in the EU economy, to deliver prosperity, resilience and social fairness while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In practice, this means millions of companies, local authorities and families investing to renovate buildings, acquire heat pumps, buy electric cars, and modernise transport and power networks.

    Building Bridges: National Developpement Banks in the Global Financial Architecture
    The Finance in Common Summit in September will be an opportunity to focus more specifically on the role of national public financial institutions in the new global financial architecture, which is currently being thoroughly discussed. National public financial institutions represent the largest amount of public development finance and account for 12% of global (public and private) investments. They will have an important role to play in locally financing the transition and contributing to shape demand, as infrastructure investors, private finance mobilisers and investment innovators. Additionally, they can influence local market practice and disseminate alignment practices.
