27 May 2020 - 3:00 pm > 17 June 2020 - 4:00 pm CEST

The National Designated Entity (NDE) of Germany on behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is inviting to a series of weekly webinars to showcase and jointly develop possible solutions on how market mechanisms can provide cost-efficient mitigation strategies and foster the transfer of climate-friendly technologies to developing countries.

As part of the discussion the following central questions will be addressed:

  • How can market mechanisms support the deployment of climate technologies in development technologies? What role could market mechanisms e.g. under Article 6 of the Paris Agreement play and how will such mechanisms develop?
  • What role can standards and benchmarks play to safeguard the environmental integrity and the path required to reach the targets under the Paris Agreement? How can they help to avoid lock-in effects of emissions through technologies or carbon-intensive practices which are incompatible with the achievement of the Paris Agreement’s goals?
  • What does it take to effectively deploy climate technologies and co-operations in developing countries? How can Green Recovery and regional roll out e.g. in Africa look like?
  • How can the technology mechanism with the CTCN and TEC at its core contribute to the accelerated use of climate technologies?

Renowned international speakers will bring their distinctive views to the four free-of-charge webinars to discuss global challenges and opportunities through short inputs and panel discussions. 

Weekly webinars: May 27 – June 17, 2020
