Charlie Parker will be presenting at the Third Forum of the Standing Committee on Finance in Durban 8-9 September 2015

Charlie Parker will present Climate Focus' paper Three Tools to Unlock Finance for Land-Use Mitigation and Adaptation which explores investments in land-use mitigation and adaptation. In this joint study, supported by the EU REDD Facility of the European Forest Institute, Climate Focus and Climate Policy Initiative have developed three tools covering national and international, public and private finance, across a full range of land-use activities with the aim of identifying and better understanding financial instruments in land-use mitigation, and encouraging coordination between public instruments across land-use sectors. 

The third forum of the Standing Committee on Finance, which was established by the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the UNFCCC, will focus on issues related to finance for forests and will be held in conjunction with the Fourteenth World Forestry Congress, where Climate Focus will present their report on Linkages between Cookstoves and REDD+ and investments in sustainable land use with the International Emissions Trading Association (IETA) and the Global Canopy Programme (GCP).
