Climate change is likely to significantly modify patterns of capital investments, and constitutes both a risk and an opportunity for investors and financial institutions. The Paris Agreement approved at the COP21 is giving a new thrust to climate policy worldwide. A framework aligning the decisions of financial institutions with long-term climate goals is taking shape, and carbon intense projects and investments will likely face an increasing risk of getting stranded.
The aim of the ICCG Lecture Series on “Climate Finance”, thanks to the involvement of experts to discuss the most relevant topics in the field, is to demonstrate the extent to which changing finance is pivotal to the finance change required by the Climate Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Paris Agreement commits countries to holding global temperature rise well below 2 degrees and to pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 °C. Significant investments are needed to meet this target and accelerate the transition towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient future. In this video-lecture, Barbara Buchner explains how to scale up financing for climate actions and how to translate countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) into real investment plans.
