Second UNFCCC Workshop on Long-term Finance

The aim of the long-term finance work programme is to contribute to the on-going efforts to scale up the mobilization of climate change finance after 2012. The second workshop will build on the discussions held during the first workshop in June in Bonn. While the first workshop mainly concentrated on understanding the general nature and overview of long-term climate finance, the second workshop is designed to generate more in-depth discussion on its sources and enabling environments. The Cape Town event is also an opportunity for Parties, private sector and civil society stakeholders to express their views on these issues. In-depth discussions will be held on important sub-topics such as new and innovative sources of climate finance, various approaches and strategies to mobilize climate finance from various sources, and ways to strengthen the capacity of developing countries for improved access to climate finance. To ensure full transparency and inclusiveness, central parts of the second workshop will be webcast live and on demand, and external participants will be able to put questions to the presenters, and leave comment's on UNFCCC's social media platforms.
