Climate finance is critical to shifting and leveraging public and private investment toward achieving the 2015 Paris climate targets and keeping global temperature rise below 1.5° C.  The impact and effectiveness of climate finance and its overall contribution to sustainable development can be optimized by enabling transparency, accountability, and integrity practices. Such best practices range from providing policy level commitments and ethical standards to ensuring proactive risk mitigation and monitoring systems, capacity development programs and meaningful stakeholder engagement and feedback or reporting mechanisms. Sharing best practices and learning from others across institutions and funds can catalyze transformational impacts and growth toward achieving the indispensable paradigm shift necessary for scaling up climate action. 

The Green Climate Fund together with the Global Environment Facility, the Adaptation Fund and the Climate Investment Funds invite you to join in a lively panel discussion on best practices and collaborative efforts to achieve transparency, accountability and integrity in the delivery of climate finance. Panellists representing each fund share their stories of successful climate policies and actions and explore building common standards and strengthening delivery capacities across the planet.
