Climate Summit side event: Financing the Paris Agreement
Financing the Paris Agreement: Harnessing Crowdfunding Platforms for Low-Carbon Development
11 November, 16:00 – 17:30 at the Africa Pavillion, Salle 2 (Blue Zone) at the COP22 in Marrakesh, Morocco
This year’s Climate Summit, taking place from 7 to 18 November, will see national governments worldwide coming together to define concrete steps towards the greenhouse gas emissions reductions agreed upon in the Paris Agreement. A large part of the puzzle is of course the financing of this landmark agreement – the topic of a special side event convened by the UNDP Alternative Finance Lab in cooperation with DNA Uganda, Citizenergy, and two Citizenergy Featured Platforms: Bettervest and Trine.
“Financing the Paris Agreement: Harnessing Crowdfunding Platforms for Low Carbon Development” will deal with questions of how crowdfunding can be part of the answer to reaching climate goals, esepcially in the developing world.
