Workshop

International NGOs in Global Governance. The Case of Climate Negotiations and Climate Finance

Nowadays, Global Governance is not only the purview of state actors interacting through international treaties but also a space where many diverse non-state actors participate in decision making. It is particularly prominent in climate change diplomacy given the variety of scientific, policy, technical and financial expertise it requires and which non-state actors can provide. As demonstrated by the last conference of parties (COP24) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), INGOs participated in the negotiations as observers, representing the interests of local governments, indigenous people, women, youth, business and industry, and the scientific community.

Workshop

Powering up Sustainable Development for Asia

The Future of Global and Regional Investment in Asia’s Energy Sector

Renewable energy technologies not only help to mitigate climate change by substituting for carbon-emitting fossil fuels, but also can expand energy security by avoiding exposure to the volatility of fossil fuel markets. Renewables, can also help provide cheap and reliable energy to areas where grid-based provision is unreliable or otherwise prohibited by geography or high costs. The increased efficiency and renewable nature of such energy can improve energy availability, energy security and economic resilience.

Workshop

CarbonCare® Conference 2018 Accelerating Green Finance in Asia: Investing in a +1.5 Degrees World

4 December 2018 (Tuesday) 9:00 am to 5:00 pm The Hong Kong Jockey Club Happy Valley Racecourse

“Limiting global warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels would be a herculean task, involving rapid, dramatic changes in how governments, industries and societies function, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The world is on track for around 3 degrees of warming by the end of the century if it doesn’t make major reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. It could breach 1.5 °C as early as 2030 if global warming continues at its current rate. At this very juncture, one of the best approaches to tackle this global challenge is to identify the gaps and opportunities for green investments, and to deliver tangible benefits by channeling funds to high-impact projects through green finance. Policy and finance experts from around the region will share their insight on how to accelerate green finance in Asia. This is a pertinent question not only for practitioners in the finance sector, but also for all business and civil society leaders who are committed to avoiding the worst outcome for our future generations.”

Perception of the Planned EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism in Asia-Pacific

Presentation of Survey Results

Although global climate action is growing, under the current unconditional commitments made by Parties to the Paris Agreement, global temperatures are predicted to rise by more than 3°C by 2100, far above the goal of 1.5°C. To address climate change and carbon leakage, the European Union plans to introduce a carbon border adjustment mechanism (EU CBAM) that will ensure that the price of imports reflects more accurately the carbon content of the goods. Against this backdrop, KAS RECAP and GlobeScan hosted a public webinar to launch the survey results on the perception of the planned EU CBAM in Asia-Pacific on 6 May 2021.
