Accountability of results based finance: Build on the best and learn when things go wrong

Paris will set the framework for a wave of climate adaptation and mitigation activities to be implemented in developing countries. These activities are expected to be financed through various public and private finance flows. The need for accountability mechanisms to ensure that climate finance meets the needs of future generations and does not conflict with human rights is widely recognized in international financial institutions (IFIs). However, it is unclear how the complex and evolving landscape of climate finance will meet the challenges to mitigate possible environmental or social risks.

This event will draw on lessons learnt from existing climate finance instruments and IFIs and discuss the design of effective redress mechanisms for the variety of climate finance instruments expected post-2020
