Maximizing impact of Development Finance Institutions tomorrow

In 2022, a global consensus was reached on the need to reform the global financial architecture, considered no longer “fit for purpose”. 2023 will be busy with many events organised to address different parts of the financial architecture reform agenda. The Spring Meetings of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund represent the first key milestone in this agenda.

    Does the 2023 budget allow the French to cope with the energy crisis? Think tanks analysis
    A webinar organized by IDDRI, l'OFCE et l'Institut Jacques Delors and Institute for Climate Economics [i4ce] on Thursday, December 14 from 12 to 1:15 pm.  In the midst of an energy crisis, France is preparing for a winter of tension. As the French National Assembly prepares to vote on the 2023 budget bill and Europe tries to find a collective solution to this crisis, many questions remain open as to the ability to manage the economic and social emergency and the acceleration of the energy and climate transition.

    Engaging key stakeholders in the implementation of long-term strategies
    The Paris Agreement enacted two complementary dynamics for an ambitious action on climate, consistent with the aim of keeping global warming well below 2DC and towards 1.5DC by the end of the century. On the one hand, according to a bottom-up approach, the mitigation and adaptation commitments as well as the policies deployed in this respect fall to the national governments, who bear the responsibility to submit their national contributions to the global effort and to define the actions they intend to engage to achieve their objectives. On the other hand, non-state actors, notably companies, have been officially recognized for the first time within the framework of international negotiations, have significantly contributed to the construction of a favorable dynamic and have voluntarily taken more and more decarbonisation commitments.

    Planning for the transition
    The transition to a low-carbon and resilient economy requires such significant structural shifts that there is a general consensus on the need to develop transition plans at all governance levels.   Indeed, since 2021, the concept of transition plans has finally become the essential concept for both state- and non-state actors to address the challenges of decarbonization : governments, corporates, financial institutions have embarked on the development of plans to organize and facilitate the transition “on the ground”.

    Financing the transition towards low-carbon and climate-resilient economies in developing countries
    Governments have a key role to play in transforming the Paris Agreement and SDG targets into credible, legally binding domestic targets, strategies, and policies. Specifically, governments need to put in place policies and regulatory frameworks which are conducive to climate investments, i.e. investments that are needed for countries to structurally transform their economies in order to achieve the net zero global objective. National transformations then need to be championed by private actors and non-governmental institutions.

    Opérationnaliser l’alignement de Paris
    Background and purpose of the event: Aligning financial flows with the Paris Agreement is becoming the new standard for the financial community, building on continuous commitments from Public Development Banks (PDBs) such as the International Development Finance Club (IDFC) and the group of Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) in 2017, but also from private banks.

    #30minsur : Bonus-malus automobile : la nécessaire évaluation
    Alors que les objectifs européens et nationaux impliquent une baisse drastique des émissions du parc de véhicules neufs d’ici 2030, il est difficile de savoir si les politiques publiques actuellement en vigueur sont à la hauteur de cette ambition ; notamment, le calibrage du bonus-malus notamment ne semble être soumis à aucune étude d’impact publique. I4CE a eu le plaisir de vous convier à un webinaire très court pour échanger sur sa dernière étude sur l’évaluation climat du bonus-malus. Les auteurs ont présenté l’outil d’évaluation qu’ils ont développé et les conclusions qu’ils en tirent sur la cohérence du barème actuel avec la stratégie nationale bas-carbone. Jean-Philippe Hermine, Expert Senior Mobilité à l'IDDRI s'est joint à eux pour échanger sur l’évaluation des politiques publiques en matière de mobilité.

    Webinar | Indexing capital requirements on climate : What impacts can be expected ?
    Increasing the contribution of banks is the major issue that I4CE proposes to address in a study published in September 2021. The objective is to overcome the classic opposition between the supporters of a Green Supporting Factor (for prudential relief due to the lower risk of green assets) and of a Penalizing Factor (to penalize activities that emit high CO2 levels because they are more exposed to transition risks).

    Webinar I Why are financial institutions focusing on the alignment of counterparties?
    The Paris Agreement has strengthened the call to the financial community to provide an essential contribution to climate action. To date, the focus of alignment efforts has principally been on what is financed – i.e. the individual projects or business activities. However, financial institutions of all types have recently been expanding the focus from the alignment of what is financed to also include an assessment of the alignment of who is financed. In response, in December 2020, marking the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement, and in the follow up of the Finance in Common Summit, UNEP FI and the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative are convening an informal FI Group on Aligning Financial Chains with the Paris Agreement.

    Webinar I Climate assessment of local budgets: the case of Strasbourg, Paris & Oslo
    Looking at cities’ budget can steer change by tracking expenditures that contribute or are harmful to the ecological transition. For local authorities, it is particularly at the time of the vote on their budget that it is possible to question these expenditures and to direct them as much as possible towards the climate transition.

    Webinar | How can development banks accelerate the green financial and budgetary transition
    The climate emergency, and the commitments of countries to support the objectives of the Paris Agreement have highlighted the need, in the very short term, to increase and reorient public and private funding towards the sectors necessary for the low-carbon transition, while reducing the flow of unfavorable climate finance.

    Webinar I Climate Investment & Sustainable Finance: What progress and insights for the CEE region?
    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. Today countries in Central Europe are moving forward to collect the information and data to support this process.

    Webinar I Fostering decision-useful information on physical climate risks
    Financial actors are now exposed to the impacts of climate change on the real economy, these impacts are observable and will intensify and the years to come. Financial institutions need to prepare for physical climate risks; however, they face a lack of relevant science-based information to make the decisions.

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