Inclusive and fair climate finance: what do we need to make it work?

What are the mechanisms behind the failure of high-income countries to deliver on their climate finance commitments? How to secure the necessary funding for a just, inclusive and green transition? How can climate finance enable grassroot communities and marginalised groups to respond to the climate crisis and, with that, lead to effective and lasting transformation?

  • For whom Climate Justice Community of Practice / other interested development professionals

In 2009, high-income countries committed in the Copenhagen Accords to mobilise US$100 billion a year by 2020 in climate finance for low- and middle-income countries. The 2023 Oxfam report finds that high-income countries have not only failed to deliver on this commitment but also continue to use generous accounting practices that allow them to overstate their level of support.

As a reaction, civil society groups worldwide call for climate finance to be accessible, inclusive, and gender-just. Even more, all over the world, we can find examples of ways in which climate finance can deliver climate solutions and justice in a way that works for people, communities and the environment

In this session, Bertram Zagema, Policy Advisor at Oxfam Novib, will introduce the architecture of the global climate finance system and present the flaws and injustices in the delivery and allocation of climate finance.

Furthermore, Florencia Ortúzar Greene, Senior Attorney in the Climate Program of AIDA, the Interamerican Association for Environmental Defense (partner of Both Ends), will share the importance of having a human rights and gender-just perspective in climate finance, together with including grassroot communities and marginalised groups in decisions that affect their territories, in order to drive a just transition.

A draft programme outline will be posted soon.
