21 Sep 2019 - In order to ensure that the transformative actions in the real economy are as impactful as possible, the Secretary-General has prioritized "Finance" as one of the six action portfolios, which are recognized as having high potential to curb greenhouse gas emissions and increased global action on adaptation and resilience. Finance: mobilizing public and private sources of finance to drive decarbonization of all priority sectors and advance resilience. The track will focus on initiatives showcasing that making public and private finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development is possible and irreversible, and on delivering on commitments of providing USD 100 billion annually by 2020 for mitigation and adaptation. It is led by France, Jamaica and Qatar and supported by the World Bank.
