Innovate4Climate

22.05.2017 - 26.05.2017, Barcelona, Spain

Finance & Markets Week

Last year's historic Paris Agreement and the overall trend to include climate change in the sustainable development agenda have set the direction for a broader global climate action. In line with these new developments, the World Bank Group will launch "Innovate4Climate - Finance & Markets Week" in Barcelona, Spain from May 22-26, 2017.

The first edition features a two-day forum with government representatives, finance and business leaders focused on Unlocking the Trillions in private sector investment needed to scale up national climate plans and to accelerate the global transition to a low-carbon, climate-resilient future.

Greening the finance sector; de-risking investments; driving low-carbon pathways through transformative policies and carbon pricing; and supporting the implementation of NDCs around the world are a few of the topics of this new global platform to advance the post-2015 framework.
