IIF Sustainable Finance Monitor - October 2021

  • COP26 – in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12 – will be the most consequential UNFCCC meeting since Paris, with hopes for successful outcomes across a broad range of negotiation items.
  • Amid calls for more ambitious leadership, four key factors will shape the outcome of negotiations: the unifying goal of Net Zero by 2050, the acceleration of harmful climate impacts, advances in the scientific understanding of climate risks, and—building on the first three—much clearer projections of how to decarbonize the global economy. 
  •  Achieving a successful outcome at COP will be contingent on three central negotiation points: the framework for Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), Article 6 of the Paris Rulebook, and a post-2025 framework for climate finance.
  •  Tune in to our COP Talks series of virtual webinars, as well as a stream of quick-take ‘daily down-loads.’ We will also be providing summary analysis of the key issues being addressed across the COP agenda.
