“Financing the green transition in China: opportunities for local government access to climate finance”, was the latest in the China Low Carbon Leadership Network event series jointly organized by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and China Carbon Forum (CCF).

It saw the launch of an important new report on opportunities for accessing climate finance by Chinese provincial governments, with a focus on Guangdong. The report is a collaborative project between GIZ and The Climate Group, titled ‘Analysis of Climate Finance Policies and Innovative Finance Mechanisms in Guangdong – Policy Mapping and Case Studies’. This event provided a good opportunity to encourage more cooperation between the organizations involved (TCG, GIZ, CCF) as well as others in attendance, to encourage further progress on climate finance.
