Financing place-based climate action – how to deliver a green and just recovery from COVID-19

Date: 18 September 2020, 11:00 am – 12:30 pm Venue: Online (via Zoom)

Mobilising finance will be critical to ensure that the UK’s recovery from COVID-19 both accelerates climate action and does this in ways that reduce inequality. Making sure that the recovery responds to the priorities of different places across the country will also be crucial to drive forward ambition and ensure the process is inclusive.

This webinar will bring together leading figures in the worlds of policy and finance to identify the strategies and mechanisms that the UK will need to deploy both public and private finance to accelerate action to combat the climate and ecological emergency. It will build on the results of the recent report, Financing climate action with positive social impact.
