Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama will officiate at two panels during the One Planet Summit in Paris, France on December 12.

A release from the Prime Minister’s Office Permanent Secretary Yogesh Karan said the first panel would be – Scaling-up Finance for Climate Action.

According to the release, today’s investments are shaping the world of tomorrow.

In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change, the investments needed are in the range of trillions of dollars.

In this context, it adds public finance has a key role to play, but will not alone foster resilient and sustainable development for all. It should more specifically support the elaboration of long-term climate policies and leverage private finance.

The panel will demonstrate how the Paris Agreement had set a new mandate for public and private finance and why it is necessary to scale-up climate finance through public engagement and its leveraging effect on private investments.
