13 September 2011 | Webinar

UNEP FI invites you to join an online discussion with leading financial and government representatives to mark the launch of a landmark UNEP FI report on forest finance policy. Launched ahead of international climate change negotiations in Durban, South Africa later this year, ‘REDDy-Set-Grow: Part II – Private sector suggestions for international climate change negotiators’ provides policy-makers and negotiators with recommendations for features of an international climate change agreement on forests that will effectively mobilise private finance flows. In conjunction with this report, UNEP FI is pleased to host an open and critical debate to explore the key issues surrounding the financing of any future REDD+ agreement from the perspectives of the different stakeholders involved – developed and developing country governments, civil society and the private sector. The discussion will address both the advantages and potentials as well as concerns and challenges of involving the private sector; it will explore ways in which the private sector can be involved and mobilised while resulting concerns among all REDD stakeholders mitigated, so as to ensure the success, effectiveness and sustainability of REDD+ projects and financing. Confirmed speakers include:

  • Andreas Dahl-Jørgensen, International Climate and Forest Initiative, Ministry of Environment, Norway
  • Stephen Cornelius, Head of Forests and Land-use Negotiations, Department of Energy and Climate Change, UK
  • Maria Victoria Chiriboga, Undersecretary of Climate Change, Ministry of the Environment, Ecuador
  • Andrew Mitchell, Founder and Director of Global Canopy Program
  • Abyd Karmali, Managing Director and Global Head of Carbon Markets, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
  • Christian del Valle, Director of Environmental Markets, BNP Paribas
  • Ravi Prabhu, Senior Programme Officer, Forests and Climate Change, UN-REDD Programme
