The Green Fiscal Policy Network organizes regional workshops and other events on topics related to the role of fiscal policies in the transition to an inclusive green economy. Information on upcoming, recent and past events organised by the Network, our partners and other organisations can be found below.
The One Planet Summit was held in 2017 to accelerate implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement and engage public and private actors in the race against global warming. Of the twelve commitments made, some such as ‘Towards a Carbon Price Compatible with the Paris Agreement’ (8), ‘International Mobilization of Development Banks’ (10) and ‘Commitment by Sovereign Funds’ (11) are closely related to green fiscal policies.
This follow-up meeting will gather Heads of State, business leaders, and other non-state actors to account for implementation of the commitments made at the One Planet Summit, build trust and collaboration for ongoing multilateral climate action. This meeting is co-hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron, Secretary-General of the United Nations António Guterres, President of the
World Bank Group Jim Yong Kim, and United Nations Special Envoy for Climate Action Michael R. Bloomberg. For further information, see press release.
