I4CE takes action in Tunisia to raise awareness in the banking sector

12 July 2018 - Blog post - By : Romain HUBERT

On Wednesday 11 July in Tunis, Romain Hubert, climate finance specialist at I4CE, participated in a climate risks and opportunities training day for banking sector actors.

 

This followed the participation of Benoit Leguet and Pierre Ducret in a lunch-debate on 18 June to raise awareness of climate change issues among the banking sector, and to discuss the consequences of the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

 

These two events were organized by the United Nations Development Programme, the National Agency for Energy Conservation, and the Tunisian Professional Association of Banks and Financial Institutions.

    COP28 : It’s money time !

    COP28 in Dubai kicks off amidst a worrying climate backdrop. For the first time, the threshold of a 2°C temperature rise compared to the pre-industrial era was exceeded in one day. In addition, a report published by the UN this week warns that current policies are placing the planet on a warming trajectory of 2.9°C, and that the chances of maintaining the increase at +1.5°C are now of only 14%. The results of the first Global Stocktake, a worldwide assessment of the actions taken by countries since the Paris Agreement, will be published at the COP and should confirm the urgent need to change the trajectory of greenhouse gas emissions.

    Climate finance: multiplying the numbers will not solve the equation alone

    Much of the discussions at COP28 will focus on the 100 billion USD/year target decided at Copenhagen to support climate investments in the Global South, and on the new climate finance goal set to replace it. But, whilst keeping our eyes on the volumes laid on the table, we also need to look more into the impact of every dollar spent. Identifying and building on the value added of every actor in the economy is essential to avoid overlaps and maximise synergies. Three types of actors have a pivotal role to play in the paradigm shift: governments, public financial institutions and private financial institutions.

    Response to GFANZ APAC on financing the early retirement of coal-fired power plants

    NewClimate Institute and the Institute for Climate Economics (I4CE) submitted a response to a public consultation on the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero’s proposed set of voluntary guidance for financing the early retirement of coal-fired power plants in Asia-Pacific. This blog post highlights key points from our submission. Preventing the worst impacts of the climate crisis, particularly for the most vulnerable, requires halting coal-fired power plants (CFPPs) in the pipeline and retiring a substantial portion of the existing global coal fleet before the end of their technical lifetime. While countries have committed to phase out unabated coal in the Glasgow Climate Pact, 350 GW of new capacity is proposed globally with an additional 192 GW under construction.
