Report of the Second GreenInvest Consultation
The second GreenInvest event, held in Berlin in May 2017, aimed to foster dialogue between G20 countries, non-G20 developing countries and the private sector, with a view to making developing country voices heard. The workshop included representatives from G20 countries, international networks and intergovernmental organizations, as well as from the Vulnerable Twenty (V20) Group of Ministers of Finance of the Climate Vulnerable Forum. Over two days, workshop participants explored:
- Green financial technology (fintech): The connections between the emerging digital finance agenda and the sustainable development, climate change and environmental agendas, particularly the issues most relevant to developing countries.
- Green Foreign Direct Investment: The opportunities to unlock the potential of green FDI as a source for sustainable and low-carbon development, particularly for developing countries.
This report summarizes the Berlin workshop discussions. It includes key insights and action points that chart a possible course forward on these issues for the G20 and developing countries. Fuller summaries of the workshop’s presentations, panel discussions and breakout groups can be found in the appendices.
