Our latest event, ’Climate Finance: The Role of Public and Private Actors,’ was jointly organized by The Canadian Embassy and the China Carbon Forum (CCF). The event was held on the 24th April 2013 at the Canadian Embassy, Beijing with nearly 60 representatives of government, industry, NGOs, and other sectors. The purpose of this event was to open discussion on the different instruments for mobilising public and private funds for climate finance. The event also endeavoured to identify what the key institutional reforms might be to enable significant money flows for climate action. [Click for Event Report]
