Highlights for Wednesday, 17 July 2013

UNFCCCThe First Meeting of Experts on Long-term Finance convened from 16-17 July in Manila, the Philippines, to focus on aspects of an extended work programme on long-term finance (LTF). Over three sessions, each consisting of a plenary and two parallel informal ‘breakout’ meetings, participants considered possible pathways for mobilizing scaled-up climate finance, parameters for identifying such pathways, and enabling environments and policy frameworks.

The meeting was part of an extended work programme on long-term finance initiated at the eighteenth meeting of the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP 18). Over forty participants, including one minister from Nicaragua, nine finance and planning representatives, seven from environment ministries and agencies, seven from civil society, and fifteen from international organizations took part. The UNFCCC extended work programme, on mobilizing scaled-up climate finance to US$100 billion per year by 2020, will culminate with an in-session high-level ministerial dialogue during COP 19, which will meet from 11-22 November 2013 in Warsaw, Poland.

At the close of the expert meeting, it was clear that further consideration would be required on pathways, reporting and transparency, a definition of climate finance, and the practical realities and constraints facing developed country parties and their public finances. At the close of the meeting, a series of reports set out outstanding issues, including the need to define climate finance. The meeting received a protest statement from a number of climate justice and debt campaigners who held an action on Tuesday.
