About the webinar

We are at a key moment for countries to take action towards increased ambition in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). According to the Paris Agreement, countries will have until 2020 to re-evaluate their climate plans and commit to a level of ambition that will prevent global warming above 1.5°C.

This webinar, co-organized by LEDS LAC Platform and the NDC Partnership, is the fourth in a series of six webinars focused on reviewing and increasing the ambition of the climate commitments. This time, we will focus on sharing experiences with specialists working at the intersection between the private sector, civil society and government to learn about the different approaches that can be taken to integrate financial institutions into climate action.

We know that countries in the region will require resources for the implementation of their NDCs. Considering how limited these resources are and the urgent need for climate action, it’s increasingly important to seek creative ways to support these efforts, including through the creation of non-traditional partnerships with the private sector. This webinar will provide an opportunity for countries in the region to learn about efforts made by regional entities to establish partnerships and financing mechanisms that contribute to climate action in Latin America. The webinar will be held in Spanish. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the LAC LEDS Platform Secretariat:
