Objective

Emphasise the importance of private sector involvement in ensuring the viability of climate policies and goals, mobilising resources for their implementation, and increasing ambition, based on the experiences and perspectives of governmental and private actors who are working to create spaces and mechanisms to increase such participation.

Presentation 

Private sector involvement is essential for ensuring the viability of climate policies, mobilising funding for their implementation and making countries' climate commitments more ambitious. The members of the Community of Practice (CoP) on Private Sector Involvement in Climate Policy in Latin America have identified factors that facilitate the systematic participation of this sector in climate policy and action, which can be grouped into three broad areas: methodologies for public-private relations, standards and regulatory frameworks, and financing.  This session will present the COP's lessons learned in these three areas and international efforts to mobilise investment and financing for low-carbon, resilient development.
