The Paris Agreement calls for nothing short of the global economic transformation, requiring a fundamental shift in the way most human beings organize their daily lives – from the goods we buy, to the way we light up our homes and power up mobile devices, to the transportation we take to work, to the food on our tables, the roofs over our heads and the environment around us. National climate action strategies or NDCs submitted as part of the Paris Agreement require USD 23 trillion investments in emerging markets between now and 2030, opening investment opportunities in renewable energy, low-carbon cities, energy efficiency, sustainable forest management, and climate smart agriculture. While climate change poses an immense challenge to humanity, it also represents a potential – perhaps the opportunity of a lifetime.
Innovate4Climate is a new global dialogue of government, multilateral, business, banking and finance leaders focused on shaping the next generation of climate finance and policy instruments. The first edition of the event included a two-day conference, workshops and side events, and a networking and exhibition area built around six thematic streams: Scaling Up NDCs, Carbon Markets, De-risking Investments, Climate Resilient Development, Green Growth Policies, and Metrics and Tools. At Innovate4Climate you can connect with the sectors driving the future of climate finance and markets, and network with leading experts, technology and financing providers, institutions and corporations to explore potential partnership and emerging business opportunities within the next economic revolution towards low-carbon and climate resilient development.
