DescriptionThe year 2020 marks the start of a pivotal decade to reduce greenhouse gases and increase green finance and investment. Only ten years remain to cut emissions by nearly 50 percent to have a good chance to limit warming to 1.5 degrees. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, this level of reductions loomed as a challenge requiring extraordinary efforts. Today, an essential focus for policy, including in Finance Ministries, needs to be to secure a green recovery and build back better. This session and the Forum as a whole will seek perspectives from key actors in the public and private sector on prospects and ambitions for green finance and investment as well as ecological transition in a COVID and post-COVID world.
