Chris Botsford, Co-founding Partner at ADM Capital, participated in a virtual panel discussion alongside The Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action on 20 January 2021.
Vivek Pathak, recently appointed the Global Head of Climate Business at IFC after serving as the IFC Regional Director for East Asia and the Pacific since October 2014, chaired an expert panel in a discussion on how governments around the world can pursue more decisive action to combat climate change and accelerate the transition towards low carbon development through fiscal policy and the use of public finance.
Private sector representatives shared thoughts on the policy changes required to enhance green investment and increase the financing of climate change adaption and mitigation among private market participants.
