Discussion round on financing action on climate change

RPV Deputy Director Reinhard Mechler joins discussion round on financing mitigation of greenhouse gases and adaptation to climate change

Climate experts demand urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This requires national instruments and international agreements on financing action on climate change. The financial framework, however, has always been a cause for debate.

How can Austria increase its effectiveness, efficiency, transparency and consistency in financing action on climate change at national and international level? What are the projects in the field of adaptation to climate change? Are these efforts targeted and are any results visible yet? These and other questions will be discussed by the following guest speakers:

Welcome: Josef Schmid (Executive Director, Austrian Hail Insurance)
Keynote speaker: Sandra Wibmer (Austrian Development Agency)
- Manfred Kohlbach (Austrian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management)
- Reinhard Mechler (International Institute for Applied System Analysis )
- Daniel Pajank (Austrian Ministry of Finance)
- John Wahlmüller (Global 2000)
- Sandra Wibmer (Austrian Development Agency)
Moderator: Judith Zimmermann Hößl (KOO)

Free entrance! Please register by 28 April 2014 at . Event in German.
