UNEP FI’s Climate Change Working Group was pleased to be at Cancun for the 2010 COP16 negotiations, and also take part in organising the first World Climate Summit. A key outcome of the negotiations was the Cancun Agreements, welcomed by many as a positive achievement and bringing hope for progress in COP17 this year. Discussions showed how the need to involve the private sector in financing and addressing climate change at an international level is now being recognized, as called for by UNEP Finance Initiative and its members through 2 global industry Statements in 2010.
