  • 8th Dialogue on Action for Climate Empowerment - Americas and the Caribbean

    15 Jul 2020 | Online

    Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE) denotes work under Article 6 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC, 1992) and Article 12 of the Paris Agreement (2015) and their six elements: Climate Change Education, Training, Public Awareness, Public Access to Information, Public Participation, and International Cooperation on these issues. Implementation of all six elements has increasingly been recognized as crucial in solving the complex challenges presented by climate change. This is also reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals (for example SDG targets 4.7 and 13.3) to which the ACE agenda is closely related.

    The objective of the Dialogue is to provide a forum for Parties and other non-Party stakeholders to advance the discussions on recommendations and views on future work to enhance implementation of Action for Climate Empowerment. Virtual regional webinars aim at providing background to and sharing knowledge among Parties and non-Party stakeholders of each region, bringing all onto the same page regarding the current status of ACE implementation. The in-person session will allow participants to further elaborate on the issues discussed during the webinars, which will inform the negotiation at the 52nd session of SBI.

  • Climate Change & the TCFD: Risks & Opportunities for the Banking Industry

    21 Sep 2020 to 23 Oct 2020 | Online

    As the understanding among financial institutions of the risks and opportunities imposed by climate change becomes more nuanced and sophisticated, and given the recent emergence of corresponding assessment & disclosure logics – first and foremost those underpinned by the 2017 recommendations of the FSB Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), there is now a need for new climate change training tailored to the financial services industry.

    The key areas addressed in this course are:

    1. Climate change as a physical, meteorological phenomenon and the impacts of climate change, covering the basic science of climate change, including the latest scientific insights as compiled by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC);

    2. The societal response to climate change as a policy-related, economic and technological matter, covering the international climate change regime, its history, and current discussions and challenges; as well as the main policy-related and technological responses to climate change at the national level;

    3. Assessing the credit risks and opportunities from physical climate change;

    4. Assessing the credit risks and opportunities from the transition to the low-carbon economy.
