15th July 2020 by Emma Goring

The full recording of CMIA and IETA’s London Climate Action Week webinar is available now.

Through 2020, not only are countries preparing to submit enhanced NDCs but also post-2020 climate finance pledges. These ambitious efforts now occur amid COVID impact and economic recovery backdrops – along with growing calls to address climate-related systemic risks to the financial sector.

Sharing private sector perspectives from across sectors and borders, this joint IETA-CMIA event examined the critical role of market mechanisms to support climate action, build resilience, and clean private investments at scale, while connecting-the-dots on how effective disclosure and risk mitigation can further support the power and impact of these market solutions to tackle climate change.
