100 Days from COP28:Commitment to Action

DIFC Conference Centre, Gate Village, Dubai
Tuesday 5th March, 09:30am - 11:30am (GST)

COP28 saw more than $80 billion in climate finance commitments from countries, development banks, private sources, and philanthropists. This level of financing is below what is needed, but there are real opportunities for this committed investment to spur additional financing for the transition, including through new finance channels.

Having successfully collaborated on the Path to COP28, the first and largest finance-focused campaign for COP28, DIFC and GEFI are co-organising this event to help ensure Dubai, and the UAE more broadly, delivers a robust COP28 legacy where commitments turn into action.

At the event the DIFC will provide an update on plans for the Sustainable Finance Catalyst that was announced during COP28. The Catalyst will aim to increase sustainable finance flows to $100 billion by 2030; scale sustainable finance from Dubai; catalyse a network of strategic partners and cultivate a sustainability-driven ecosystem.

Other local financial institutions and financial services stakeholders will join to highlight the practical actions they are taking to support the transition into a greener UAE economy.
