Policy Round Table On Climate Finance
The India GHG Program is hosting a policy round table on climate finance to analyse two integral pieces of the climate finance puzzle – International Climate Finance and Domestic Private Climate Finance.
The round table will analyse on the problems, opportunities and potential next steps for accessing international climate finance. It will look at accessibility to international corpuses such at the Green Climate Fund, allocation and disbursal of funds, linkages with focal agencies and so on.
While the bulk of climate finance needs to be from international monetary systems, there must be corresponding dynamic domestic flow to truly affect change.
The round table hopes to survey the domestic context, and identify how global funds can be utilised to leverage domestic private finance. It will also look at domestic factors that promote and inhibit private finance and how to address them. For instance, can international funds be used as initial investments/viability gap funding for climate project investments?
