Engaging the Private Sector to Contribute to Climate Change Mitigation
CCCEP’s Alina Averchenkova co-organized and presented at the regional Latin America and Caribbean workshop of the Low-Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme of the UNDP on ‘Engaging the Private Sector to Contribute to Climate Change Mitigation’ which took place in Santiago, Chile on 14-16 May 2014. This workshop provided an opportunity to initiate a public-private dialogue on stimulating involvement of the private sector in climate change mitigation. This involved policy makers, project developers and corporates in the key sectors, as well as financial institutions, including international, regional, national development and commercial banks. The objective of the workshop was to discuss experiences in private sector participation on mitigation activities and nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) in developing countries; engage various actors in a discussion on policy objectives and innovative approaches to support mitigation activities and NAMAs; and to exchange lessons learned on improving market conditions to enhance private investment.
