Description

The Environmental Fiscal Reforms for Low-Carbon Growth workshop is organized jointly by the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit of Colombia and the Climate Action Peer Exchange (CAPE). Hosted at the World Bank, CAPE supports the efforts of finance ministries to design effective climate-change adaptation and mitigation strategies consistent with the achievement of the Nationally Determined Contributions agreed in Paris 2015.

The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussing ongoing environmental fiscal reforms in the Latin America region. The agenda will include presentations and panel discussions on:

  • Lessons from the regional and international experience with the implementation of carbon pricing mechanisms;
  • Policy and fiscal instruments to unlock private finance for green investments;
  • Challenges to access international climate-related finance;
  • Policies to halt deforestation and achieve forest conservation efforts.

The event will count with the participation of the Colombian Minister of Finance of Colombia Mauricio Cárdenas Santamaria, Minister of Environment and Sustainability Development Luis Gilberto Murillo, General Director of the National Department of Planning Luis Fernando Mejía, representatives from regional governments, and international organizations including the WBG, IMF, IETA, EDF, CDP, and others.
