About the webinar
This webinar will discuss issues at stake such as key impediments to private sector and measures to improve the enabling investment environment such as maintaining fiscal discipline to improve the value and stability of the local currency as well as regulatory efforts to improve the ease of doing business. This webinar will also discuss how climate change risk is assessed.
This webinar is organized jointly by UNDP through its NDC Support Programme, IMF Representative Office in Ghana and Moody’s.
The Paris Agreement requires the mobilization of private sector investments to achieve its ambitious targets. Against this background, UNDP under its NDC Support Programme promotes a much stronger collaboration across ministries and between public and private sector to adopt an inclusive and holistic approach to addressing climate change, instead of regarding it as an environmental, stand-alone challenge. Discussions among policymakers and private sector are needed to enhance a policy environment that will facilitate the mobilization of investments to implement the countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
