International Conference: Unlocking Private Finance for Energy Efficiency and Greener, Low-Carbon Growth in the Eastern Partnership and Central Asia Countries
June 29, 2017 - June 30, 2017
This conference, jointly organized by OECD, UNECE, UN Environment and UNIDO, will identify key challenges and ways forward to better align financial mechanisms with policy reforms to speed and scale up green investments in support of energy efficient and low-carbon growth, new business opportunities and green jobs in the Eastern Partnership countries and Central Asia. Topics to be discussed include: the lessons learned from mobilising capital markets to finance the transition to a green economy; the role of public authorities in unlocking private finance for green investment; making better use of international climate-related development finance; new avenues, including the role of banking and monetary policy, the use of green bonds and mobilising institutional investors, such as pension funds and sovereign wealth funds.
