As world leaders continue preparations for the international climate negotiations in Paris later this year, climate finance has emerged as a major subject of discussion, and with good reason. Experts agree that dealing with climate change will require trillions in investment each year.
Finance for Resilience is a platform that seeks to address this challenge by identifying, launching, and scaling up private sector financing mechanisms for climate-friendly projects worldwide.
This year, FiRe is seeking the best ideas to drive investments in clean energy, climate finance, sustainability, and green growth. The winning interventions will gain exposure, analytical support, and access to a wide range of high-level experts to support implementation over the course of a year-long cycle. The Call for Ideas is open now, and the deadline for submission is December 31, 2015.
This webinar provides an overview of FiRe, the Call for Ideas, and next steps.
