The Long-Term Climate Strategies for Inclusive Growth and a Sustainable Recovery webinar was part of the IIF ESG Webinar Series, which was designed to promote understanding of the rapidly evolving landscape for ESG disclosure and to align efforts to measure and track climate finance.
Climate change will have an outsized impact on development. At the same time, actions to address climate change also present strategic investment opportunities for better development outcomes by unlocking sustainable, resilient, and inclusive growth. Mid-century climate strategies (i.e. looking out to 2050) can help countries align short- and medium-term policies with a long-term vision for low-carbon, resilient development.
