Aligning capital flows: Are we on track ?

This session will be sequenced as a talk show divided between fireside chats, one to one interview and insights from experts.
The mobilization of the financial community is a major component of the Paris Agreement and condition to the achievement of global climate goals. Three years later, it is essential to measure progresses and to sustain the worldwide momentum. This session will aim to take stock on action and to check if the global financing dynamics are in line with the 2°C trajectory over the long-term. It will showcase experts’ feedback, highlight concrete and innovative projects, and will propose a “forward-looking” approach for the fight against climate change.
