World Climate Forum Asia (WCF Asia) 2020 will bring together key partners in exploring new opportunities in the fast growing Asia Pacific market. The Forum will focus on ways the public and private sector can innovate, collaborate and scale local and international solutions to navigate Asia’s transition to a clean economy. The programme will be divided into two days: day one will focus on the energy transition and infrastructure, day two will focus on recovery and adaptation. The key drivers highlighted across both days and sessions are finance, policy, innovation and partnerships.
WCF Asia will catalyse regional climate action from this high growth continent and contribute to the global agenda at World Climate Summit 2021 during COP26 in Glasgow and beyond. It will support the mobilisation of local and international efforts and leverage green financial and economic models for the net-zero transition. High-level discussions will prioritise scalable public and private sector strategies on growing carbon markets, the blue economy, and nature-based solutions.
