The Nordic countries have a joint pavilion at the UN Climate negotiations in Marrakech, November 7-18, 2016, under the auspices of the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Nordic pavilion at COP22 will highlight New Nordic Climate Solutions through a series of events and activities focusing on a greener future.
This side event will present feasible funding criteria for mitigation and adaptation synergies, and discus the feasibility and barriers for the use and implementation of a financing design with potential for supporting mitigation and adaptation synergies in forestry, agriculture, energy sectors, and urban areas. The event takes place at the New Nordic Climate Solutions Pavilion - Section DEL2, Blue Zone, COP22.
- How does your institution address mitigation and adaptation synergies?
- Do you have any early findings or other cases about synergies and their financing?
- Which challenges do you see in mitigation and adaptation synergies and their financing?
