Closing the gap: Mobilising missing financial resources for climate change mitigation

Join us for a panel discussion with Norbert Gorißen (BMUB), Christine Majowski (GIZ), Jochen Wermuth (Wermuth Asset Management), moderated by Brigitte Knopf (MCC) and chaired by Christian Flachsland (Hertie School) and Hertie School students Racien Nowak and Jose Imer Campos.

As climate change takes a toll on the globe, the banking and finance industry is debating its role in the transformation to a sustainable economy. Both the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals point to the fact that innovative financing is necessary to counter the effects of climate change and shift to a low-emission economy. One study shows that $6.9 trillion is needed per year over the next fifteen years for infrastructure alone, to meet sustainability commitments. Join us for a panel discussion, which brings together public and private sector representatives and experts in the fields of green and climate finance to discuss how this gap can be filled. What links are missing in the current financial markets? How can more investment in climate finance in the public and private sectors be triggered?

This event is part of The Governance Post Event Series, a student-led public event initiative at the Hertie School.
