‘Debt and Climate Change: Innovative Solutions to Climate Finance’ is one of a series of high-level events being co-hosted by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the Presidency of the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 27), the UN Climate Change High-Level Champions, and the Permanent Mission of Egypt to the UN in Geneva, Switzerland. The aim of the high-level events is to explore critical issues in enabling all countries to move from pledges to implementation.
The event will consider:
- the relationship between climate change and increasing debt distress;
- what can help countries both address unsustainable debt burdens and facilitate climate-resilient development;
- innovative tools and instruments that can be implemented to provide climate finance at scale without exacerbating debt; and
- major barriers to action.
