Public event, Overseas Development Institute and screened live online http://www.odi.org.uk/events/details.asp?id=2625&title=climate-change-finance-effectiveness-low-carbon-gree-growth
Low carbon growth strategies need to be put in place to stimulate green investment and innovation, and attract climate finance from both private and public sources. However, ODI research on the low carbon growth strategies of a range of countries illustrates that many – especially low income countries – are a long way from understanding and responding to these opportunities and challenges. This meeting explores this challenge and how to finance responses to it.
