MOPAN virtual high level roundtable: Accelerating the multilateral response to climate change

Oct 27, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM


Following the publication of Pulling Together: The Multilateral Response to Climate Change, the Multilateral Organisation Performance Assessment Network (MOPAN) with the support of the Government of Luxembourg are organising a High-Level Roundtable of Multilateral Organisation (MO) leaders, Ministers and senior level officials to discuss how to accelerate the multilateral system response to climate change through concrete policy measures. Leaders of MOs will be invited to present how they are putting climate change at the centre of their strategies, and using innovative approaches to meet international commitments. Ministers from MOPAN members, as well as stakeholders and shareholders of the system, will consider how member states can further shape their policies towards multilateral institutions, in the pursuit of these common goals. Lastly, reflections from private sector perspectives will highlight the conditions that are necessary for private sector investments to be optimised. The event will identify concrete steps that can be implemented by stakeholders to strengthen the multilateral response. 14:00 Welcome by the MOPAN Secretariat - Suzanne Steensen, Head, MOPAN Secretariat 14:05 Scene setting introduction by the moderator - Laura Tuck, Former Vice President for Sustainable Development, World Bank 14:10 Opening remarks - Franz Fayot, Minister of Economy and Minister for Development and Humanitarian Action, Luxembourg 14:20 Keynote speakers Zakia Khattabi, Minister for Climate, Environment, Sustainable Development and the Green Deal, Belgium Carlos Manuel Rodriguez, CEO and Chair Person, Global Environment Facility Philippe Le Houérou, Economist and former Chief Executive Officer, IFC 14:40 Panel discussion Jorge Moreira da Silva, Director, Development Cooperation Directorate, OECD Haoliang Xu, Assistant-Secretary General, United Nations Development Programme Terhi Lehtonen, State Secretary, Ministry of the Environment, Finland Jyotsna Puri, Associate Vice-President,, International Fund for Agricultural Development Sinead Walsh, Climate Change Envoy, Deputy Director-General, Department of Foreign Affairs, Ireland Bruno Carrasco, Director General of Sustainable Development and Climate Change, Asian Development Bank 15:15 Final reflections Mathias Cormann, Secretary-General, OECD 15:30 Conclusions and next steps by the moderator, Laura Tuck
