How do we mobilize financing for the energy transition?

Group of friends for Sustainable Energy meeting 13 May 2020.


This meeting will include a presentation of the Climate Investment Platform, a joint initiative by UNDP, SEforALL and IRENA, in coordination with the GCF, that was launched at the Climate Action Summit in 2019. The Platform aims to respond to the challenges that many developing countries face in accessing finance to reach their energy goals.

There will be an opportunity to discuss how donor and recipient countries can engage with the Platform to maximize its value to both seekers and suppliers of climate finance.
