On March 15th, representatives of the European institutions, national governments and public entities, academia and research institutions as well as non-governmental organisations have met in Berlin to discuss different approaches to climate finance tracking and the assessment of the investment needs associated with the low-carbon transition.
The workshop „Finance flows and investment needs for the Energy and Climate finance landscapes transition” was organised within the framework of “Landscapes of Climate Finance: Promoting debate on climate finance flows in Central Europe” and “Climate Investment Capacity: climate finance dynamics & structure for financing the 2030 targets” projects that are supported by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) and implemented by WiseEuropa, NewClimate Institute and I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics; and IKEM, Czech Technical University in Prague (CVUT) and Riga Technical University (RTU), respectively.
The workshop was designed to enable:
1.The exchange on methodologies for tracking climate finance and overview of new results from climate tracking in France, Germany, Czech Republic, Latvia and Poland.
2.Discussion on methodologies for analysing investment needs, and associated knowledge gaps and challenges, with the latest reviews from Germany and France
3.Discussion on how climate finance tracking and an improved understanding of investment needs can support different types of decision- and policy-making processes such as the National Energy and Climate Plans and Long-term Strategies, and facilitate the long-term alignment with the Paris Agreement.
