“Ensuring climate finance is open to public scrutiny” webinar on Wednesday 12th October

With COP27 fast approaching, a critical barrier to tackling the climate emergency is high income countries delivering on their commitment to contribute $100 billion to help emerging economies adapt to climate change and deliver low carbon, resilient infrastructure. 

However, considering a third of global infrastructure investment is lost through inefficiencies, the huge sums involved are likely to increase the risk of some of this finance leaking through mismanagement and corruption. The UN Independent Expert Report on Climate Finance has highlighted the importance of data and transparency to clearly track and count what is climate finance. 

Our panel of experts for this discussion include: 

  • Professor Priti Parikh, Acting Director at UCL’s The Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction
  • Richard Calland, UN Expert Panel 
  • Pamela Acheng, University of Makeree  

The discussion will include: 

  • The importance of mainstreaming climate finance and the solutions
  • Climate justice and existing inequities 
  • Green infrastructure and cities 
  • Avoiding corruption with transparency, data and monitoring 
  • What should happen at COP27 and how this differs to COP26

This webinar is free for all to join, and takes place from 1pm-2.20pm GMT. Sign up here to join us.
