The UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) will host one of five regional forums being organized by the Egyptian Presidency of the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 27), UNFCCC High-level Champions, and the five UN Regional Commissions.
The Arab Regional Forum will explore the climate finance needs of Arab countries for ensuring water, energy, and food security under changing climate conditions. The Forum will:
- facilitate engagement with a broad set of partners and stakeholders to accelerate public and private investment mobilization and blended finance opportunities around concrete projects and initiatives;
- identify synergies and entry points for climate finance to support the acceleration of access to clean energy, energy efficiency technologies, and the means to ensure water and food security – key catalysts for the attainment of the SDGs and mitigation and adaptation goals in the Arab region; and
- connect institutional investors, private sector financiers, and development partners with governments, and broker dialogues around co-creating investment opportunities in support of regional priority actions.
