A curated evening networking reception brought to you by Climate Action and The Gold Standard Foundation
In the last two years, 100 million+ people globally have migrated to cities and by 2050, they will house up to three quarters of the worlds population. As such, the role of cities in climate mitigation and adaptation is crucial; however climate finance has largely failed to reach these ever growing urban environments.
This high level evening, fittingly hosted in one of the most populous cities in the world, will focus on how investment can be effectively mobilised to support integrated, and socially responsible, low carbon urban development programmes that can be replicated worldwide. Keynote speakers and networking discussions will drill down specifically to the factors needed to secure investment, using examples such as the cities of Delhi, Colombo and Sakarya to demonstrate the work cities are already implementing to become more sustainable and resilient.
Press conference: This meeting is co-hosted by Climate Action, the organisers of Sustainable Innovation Forum to be held during UNFCCC COP20 in Lima on 9th December. As an adjunct to the discussions, this evening will also mark the official initiative launch for 2014.
Date: Sunday, 21st September 2014
