About this event


Join our panel of experts to explore how governments can refocus their economies towards transformational, climate-safe, green growth.

Achieving the Paris Agreement along with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires an estimated investment of US$2.6 trillion each year over the next decade for developing countries alone.

Creating an ‘investment vision’ to address these challenges is vital for many national and subnational governments. The unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic means governments must also now manage the significant human and economic costs of the pandemic.

Join us for a panel discussion featuring ClimateWorks head of international programs Meg Argyriou, Dian Lestari from Indonesia’s Fiscal Policy Agency, Ministry of Finance, Cecilia Tam from the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), Richard Baron from the 2050 Pathways Platform and Guntur Sutiyono from ClimateWorks in Jakarta, as they focus on ways governments can unlock transformational investments in green growth and jobs.

This wide-ranging discussion brings perspectives from Indonesia, Europe and Australia, and will cover long-term strategies, policy, governance, technology readiness and financing mechanisms.
