a global community
Climate change is one of the most significant risks facing humanity today. To prevent the consequences that would be generated by an increase of more than 1.5 °C in global temperature, unprecedented global action is needed.
The Paris Agreement requires global financial flows to be consistent with the effective transition to resilient, zero-carbon development. We need all relevant actors to engage in financial action that is not limited to public finance and climate funds. Other key players need to be incorporated, including public financial institutions, investors, and business groups, as well as capital markets, banks, and other lenders, capable of mobilizing trillions of dollars on the path to transition.
Decarboost - Catalysing Investment to Decarbonize Latin America and the Caribbean is sponsored by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) and funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
One of the project’s core strategies is the Community of Practice in Climate and Investment (CoP), a collaboratively created space of opportunities.
We would be honored to count on your participation to be part of this regional space where concrete, viable, and globally-recognized solutions are developed and promoted. The Decarboost Community of Practice in Climate and Investment will take place over a timeframe of one year, and potentially continue for up to three years, to support your personal and institutional efforts to drive a decarbonization-oriented economy in Latin America.
Four annual meetings will contribute to knowledge exchange, close knowledge gaps between the sectors involved, create collaborative networks, and generate concrete solutions.
The Community of Practice in Climate and Investment will be launched on March 4th (13:15 to 15:00 GMT+5), in the framework of the annual Nexos+1 event, a social and collaborative platform that supports the transformation of the Latin American private sector.
Attached to this invitation you will find information about the project, information about the Community of Practice, and contact details should you require further information.
Thank you for your attention,
The Decarboost Team
