As countries move forward to implement national climate strategies, National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) and more broadly Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), there is an increasing need to understand how to transform investment needs into capital raising and financing plans. Today countries in Central Europe are moving forward to collect the information and data to support this process.
In March 2019, I4CE in partnership with WiseEuropa and NewClimate Institute launched an EU Climate Investment and Finance Tracking Group at an EUKI-supported workshop in Berlin. The objective of this group is to connect and foster the exchange of knowledge and expertise between different types of actors (research, think-tanks, government, among others) on the finance and investment topics related to the low-carbon resilient transformation of European countries. Part of the EUKI-sponsored “Landscape of Climate Finance : Promoting debate on climate finance flows in Central Europe”, the contact group has a specific objective of increasing the participation of representatives from Central and Eastern European countries in these discussions.
To continue the discussions begun in Berlin in March 2019, the project consortium proposes the organization of two webseminars in November and December 2019. This corresponds with the publication of new research related to landscape tracking work in France, Germany and Czechia.
This series of webseminars is financed by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). It is the overarching goal of the EUKI to foster climate cooperation within the European Union (EU) in order to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The opinions put forward in this workshop are the sole responsibility of the organizers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
