Path to COP29 – Climate Finance

The COP28 agreement signaled the “beginning of the end” of the fossil fuel era by laying the ground for a swift, just, and equitable transition, underpinned by deep emissions cuts and scaled-up finance. As we look ahead to COP29 in Baku, climate finance will remain a critical theme, with a contiuing focus on climate solutions and mobilising funding for clean energy investments and adaptation measures.

Across 2024, the GEFI Insights series climate theme will seek to link COP28 Dubai and COP29 Baku to ensure climate finance flows to where it is most needed.
