Media Advisory: Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action – Santiago’s Action Plan Launch

Within COP 25, Ms. Susanne Pedersen, Assistant Director-General and Head of Investment and Policy Solutions Division of GGGI, will moderate Session 3 of the Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action – Santiago’s Action Plan Launch event. Participants will discuss and share insights on ways to make NDC implementation and de-carbonization a reality.

Background:

The Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action (the Coalition), co-chaired by Finland and Chile, was launched at the World Bank Group-IMF Spring Meetings on April 13, 2019 to drive stronger collective action to tackle climate change and its impacts. The Coalition will help countries to design and implement climate policies at the national level and consider coordinated efforts at the regional and global level. The key objective of the Coalition is to bring climate considerations into the mainstream of economic policy. In particular, the focus is on carbon pricing, macroeconomic and fiscal policies, public financial management as well as climate finance to achieve low-carbon and climate-resilient growth.

After several months of intense and collaborative work, the Santiago Action Plan will be launched during COP25, on December 9th, 2019. The event consists of a high-level conference with the participation of Finance Ministers and outstanding speakers linked to the private sector, academia, and the public sector.
