Ensuring Equity in the Green Climate Fund

Kenney Auditorium, Johns Hopkins University SAIS 1740 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC

The creation of a global Green Climate Fund represents an important victory for developing countries and their civil society allies at the UN climate talks held in Cancun in 2010. However, the daunting task of designing almost all major elements of the new fund remains on the agenda for the coming year.  Please join us for a dynamic panel discussion with climate finance experts from developing country governments and global civil society.
