Now that many countries have gone through the processes of updating and submitting their NDCs, their work turns from setting high-level targets to determining how to finance them.

No two NDCs are alike, which means every country will draw upon a different set of instruments to finance its climate action. Moreover, developed countries must meet commitments for concessional finance. But all countries must plan for, implement and monitor their progress.

To help countries navigate these challenges, WRI is hosting a webinar to share lessons learned from our recent report Paying for the Paris Agreement. We are joined by a panel of experts from countries that have utilized the instruments necessary to move forward with their commitments.
