ODI and WRI convened a two day workshop March 5th and 6th to reflect on upcoming opportunities in 2015 to mobilising climate finance and to secure a strong Paris Agreement. With such an important year and set of processes ahead, leading think tanks, research institutions, NGOs, and governments came together to discuss:
Concrete options to make progress on climate finance in Paris, including the role of finance beyond 2020;
The role of 2015 processes in shifting mainstream investment away from business as usual and towards climate compatible development;
The case for action, and new narratives that will help focus attention and make a difference: what needs to be done in capitals;
Key research outputs to inform and support discussions in Paris and other key finance meetings in 2015.
