GCAS: Advancing the Climate-Smart Future of Finance

  • GLOBAL CLIMATE ACTION SUMMIT – AFFILIATE EVENT
  • Open working session on climate-smart finance innovation
  • Thursday, September 13, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon

This open GCAS Affiliate Event, co-convened by Acceleration Dialogues partners CCE, Geoversiv and the International Center for Dialogue and Peacebuilding, will explore issues of food security, public health, carbon liability, and climate-smart finance, in the context of the Resilience Intel Charter.

The featured panel includes:

  • Dr. Sudhvir Singh, EAT Foundation
  • Dr. Natasha DeJarnett, American Public Health Association
  • Oliver Marchand, Carbon Delta
  • Joseph Robertson, Citizens’ Climate Education (moderator)

During the Global Climate Action Summit 2018, Resilience Intel partners Citizens’ Climate Education and Geoversiv—with support from Madison River Group, Carbon Delta, the Climate Bonds Initiative, and the International Association for the Advancement of Innovative Approaches to Global Challenges (IAAI)—released the Resilience Intel Founding Charter.

The Charter serves as a background note on the need for integrated solutions to achieve operational resilience intelligence and also as a strategic outline of principles and aims for the long-term mission of achieving 100% climate-smart finance.

Intended outcomes include:

  1. A new global aggregate of dedicated and catalyzed climate-smart finance;
  2. reporting of new climate-smart budget commitments from non-Party stakeholders at various levels;
  3. newly defined action-steps for private-sector financial institutions to decarbonize future finance commitments;
  4. strategy for smart information sharing related to achieving the 2038 target for 100% climate-smart finance globally;
  5. guiding questions for the 3rd Biennial High-level Ministerial Dialogue on Climate Finance, at COP24, on economy-wide resilience intelligence.

This event is part of the Acceleration Dialogues series, which led to the creation of the Resilience Intel initiative.
