We were delighted to partner with Garanti BBVA to host an online edition of our IIF Climate Finance Workshop. As part of a series we have been organizing since 2018, this workshop gave a fresh look at the rapidly evolving landscape of climate finance from an emerging markets perspective, with a particular focus on key takeaways from COP 26. The event was tailored and timed for a European audience and featured interactive panels that will focus on case studies and practitioners’ experience in mobilizing climate finance for the Turkish economy.
