Role of Governments and Private Sector Players in accelerating Climate Finance in the Arab States Region

The Clean Energy Business Council (CEBC) through its Climate Finance Working Group and the UNDP Regional Hub in Amman, through its regional project “SDG-Climate Facility: Climate Action for Human Security” are joining hands to deliver two Webinars, focusing on the Climate Finance for Resilience in the Arab States region.
The discussions will focus on the role of climate finance -public and private – in enabling transformative climate action and to meet the SDGs in a region that is characterized by a diverse set of countries, from highly developed, high income countries, to those that are continuously at risk of falling into poverty traps as a result of ongoing conflict and crises. These discussions are expected to lead to the development of partnerships among different actors to facilitate private investment to address the climate-SDGs nexus in the Arab States region.
The objective of the first webinar is to understand the experiences of governments and private sector players in accelerating climate finance in the Arab States region, leading to resilient development and growth.
