The planet is on the verge of exceeding the 1.5 centigrade limit established by the 2015 Paris Agreement, placing the issue of climate change front and centre for all of us today. On the other side of this crises are vulnerable nations, who have fewer resource to fight climate change, and are facing the double jeopardy of climate justice. In our next episode of Decoding Impact we explored the topic of Climate Finance – focusing on the intersection between finance and climate change, and discussing the role India can play in the global agenda.
Finance has a crucial role to play to support three key pillars of mitigation, adaptation, and loss & damage, which are all actions that are necessary to address climate change. So how much money are we talking about? What institutional structures do we need to put in place to accelerate action? To discuss these questions and more in detail with us, we sat down with Mr. Varad Pande, a climate finance and investment expert. Varad is currently a partner at BCG, shaping their work in climate and sustainability.
