Rethinking the finance agenda in the "decade for delivery"
COP26 comes at a critical crossroads, and is hoped to significantly raise ambition and accelerate action in the “decade for delivery”. A range of public and private actors are positioning themselves for the lowcarbon transition and demonstrating leadership. As net-zero commitments and pledges increase, will they be enough to achieve the unprecedented levels of global emission reductions needed this decade? In light of the ongoing challenges of COVID-19-related debt and recovery, roadblocks to scaling up private investment for green growth, and societal inequities exposed by the pandemic, what does the global future of green finance look like? And how can the low-carbon transition be achieved in a way that addresses adaptation needs, other environmental objectives, and wider well-being needs?
