The World Bank’s so-called triple win solutions of “Climate Smart Agriculture” drew heavy flak at a side event organized yesterday by five major civil society groups at the ongoing 17th Conference of Parties (COP17) meeting of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) here in Durban, South Africa.
IBON International will be holding two side-events on climate finance in the coming Durban climate summit. “Improving development effectiveness in climate finance: challenges and opportunities” is an official COP17 side-event. “Financing climate justice: voices from the South” is a side-event in the summit’s alternative space called the “People’s Space.” People from government and civil society are invited to speak. The two side-events are co-organized with several other civil society organizations.
