It’s the economy! Smart Policies for Climate Investments

Event Type

Bonn, 09.06.2015

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) in cooperation with the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)

Reducing global greenhouse gas emissions on a large scale and effective adaptation to climate change require the provision of substantial financial resources. A global green transformation will only succeed if businesses increase investments in low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure, technologies and services. Additionally, the financial sector needs to broaden the capital supply and adequate investment products. The objective of this evening event is to facilitate the exchange on business-led innovative approaches, needed regulatory frameworks and public policies contributing to mobilizing private investments in a green energy transition.

The principal subjects that had been addressed were:

  • How the green energy transition can become an opportunity for growth, particularly in developing countries;
  • How to introduce smart framework conditions, which can leverage private investments in a green energy transition;
  • How development cooperation can promote green energy transitions in developing countries and emerging economies;
  • How global knowledge exchange can support the implementation of policy instruments and business-led approaches for climate protection.
