Innovate4Climate (I4C) 2018 will convene global leaders from industry, government and multilateral agencies for a one-day summit, workshops and a marketplace, to work and hold dialogue on: development of innovative financing instruments and approaches to support low-carbon, climate-resilient development pathways; mobilization of private investments in climate action; support to developing countries in their Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) implementation; and development of ideas on how market-based and non-market-based climate finance instruments identified in the Paris Agreement on climate change can best be designed to maximize impact and minimize costs.
I4C was launched in 2017 as an integral part of the global dialogue of government, multilateral, business, banking, finance and technology leaders and society. Its 2018 edition is hosted by the World Bank and the Governments of Germany and Spain.
