The Conference of the Parties (COP) at its seventeenth session mandated the Standing Committee on Finance (SCF) to organize a Forum for communication and continued exchange of information among bodies and entities dealing with climate finance to promote linkages and coherence. Furthermore, the COP requested the SCF to facilitate the participation of the private sector, financial institutions, and academia in the Forum, as well as strengthen its stakeholder engagement.
Building on the experience from previous Fora, where the SCF worked with a wide range of partner institutions and, where possible, held the Forum in conjunction with relevant events, the SCF invites interested stakeholders to submit proposals on its next Forum on “Finance for Nature-Based Solutions” (NBS), related to:
- • Scope and purpose of the Forum;
- • NBS-related papers and case studies that could inform the Forum;
- • Potential institutions and events to partner with, in the organization of the Forum.
The SCF looks forward to receiving relevant submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 July 2020.
