How will governments, businesses, and financial institutions divide their roles in the coming transformation of the global economy? What will the climate finance system look like? Who will make money from it and how?
The 26th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, to be held this November in Glasgow, will become the main event of the year.
In the preparation to Glasgow, the leading nations are finalizing changes to their Nationally Determined Contributions to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Implementation of these contributions will lead to accelerated investments in environmental projects.
