Climate Finance Accelerator

We are proud to lead the consortium who developed and delivered the inaugural Climate Finance Accelerator (CFA) workshop in London between 11 and 15 September this year. 

As part of COP23, on Thursday 15th November (details above) we will be speaking about the success of CFA and how this innovative approach to developing climate finance plans can help countries progress their commitments to the Paris Agreement.
