Understanding Climate Finance & Key Players

Understanding Climate Finance & Key Players

For nearly three decades, the United Nations has brought together countries and world leaders at global climate summits called COP’s (“Conference of the Parties”) – in an effort to make the issue of climate change a global priority. As the 26th annual COP kicked off this week in Glasgow, countries are expected to update their plans for reducing emissions. Among the main topics to be discussed will be climate finance – local, national or transnational financing drawn from public, private and alternative sources that supports mitigation and adaptation actions to address climate change.
