The Climate Briefing

In 2021, the UK is hosting the annual UN Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, where politicians and experts from across the world gather to cooperate on addressing the threat of climate change.

This podcast, from the Energy, Environment and Resources Programme at Chatham House, explores the major issues that shape international debates on climate change.

Jun 1, 2020

Finance plays a key role in enabling climate change mitigation and adaptation. It is also a contested issue in the UN climate negotiations. The UK Government has made climate finance one of its top thematic priorities for COP26 and 2020 constitutes the deadline for developed countries to mobilise USD 100 billion per year to support climate action in developing countries. 

This week the Climate Briefing team speak to three experts to find out more. Mattias Frumerie, from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, explains the key debates surrounding climate financing. Tenzin Wangmo, Lead Negotiator for the Least Developed Countries (LDC) Group outlines how developing countries view these financial concerns. Finally, Rachel Ward from the IIGCC provides an insight into how investors are approaching the issue.
