It is a pleasure to invite you to a workshop to discuss and develop a joint position on the need for accountability of climate finance flows as part of the Paris climate treaty.

Background: The Paris climate treaty to be adopted by the end of this year will set the framework for a wave of climate adaptation and mitigation activities to be implemented in developing countries. These activities are expected to be financed through various public and private finance flows with the goal to mobilise 100 billion dollars annually starting in 2020.
A large amount of climate finance is expected to flow through the Green Climate Fund. However, also other channels are envisaged to finance climate action with a particular emphasis on mitigation activities (World Bank’s initiatives such as PMR, NAMA facility, etc.).
