On the eve of the G20 Finance Ministers meeting in São Paulo, the Institute for Climate and Society (iCS) has organized events on the sidelines of the Brazilian Forum for Climate Finance. CPI experts will participate in the following sessions.

The reform of the architecture of the international financial system and the G20 agenda

10:00 – 11:30am BRT

The past two years have seen major contributions to the international finance architecture reform agenda discussions (including The Triple Agenda (the G20-IEG), Finance for Climate Action (the “Songwe-Stern report”), An Innovative IFI Operating Model for the 21st Century, the Bridgetown Initiative). Each of these offer policy prescriptions that address multiple, systemic issues, including the scarcity and high cost of capital flowing to developing countries, increasing climate risks, and sovereign debt crises. There now is broad agreement on the diagnosis, but we lack political urgency to act.

Co-organized by the Institute for Climate and Society (iCS) and Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), this session will assess how to build on previous efforts, what actions need to happen in 2024, whether and how to prioritize, and which actors need to be engaged more intensively in the build up to the G20 Brazil Summit in a way to jolt the system, so it acts.

Moderated by CPI Global Managing Director Barbara Buchner, the session will include the following panelists:
