Data as the key to unlocking climate finance and action

Location

Tuesday 21st September 2021, 2pm (NZ)

The Paris Agreement set ambitious targets for climate change adaptation and mitigation, with the goal of limiting global warming to below 2°C compared to pre-industrial levels. However, accessibility to climate finance for achievement of these goals has been slow. This webinar explores how data availability is key to unlocking timely climate finance and ensuring effective climate action.”

Background:

Inter-agency collaboration, a core principle in the development field, maximises impact of work of developing agencies and increases the value delivered to their stakeholders. For collaboration opportunities to be created, development organisations like SPC actively work on making their work transparent and visible to external actors.

As part of their effort towards increasing collaboration between agencies involved in the development sector in the Pacific, SPC and NIWA are organising a series of seminars in which some of their current and past work will be presented. The audience, in addition to staff members of these two organisations are stakeholders interested in SPC’s and NIWA’s work including MFAT, MBIE and others.

The topics covered in the webinars are topical and gravitate around use of advanced computing resources in solving problems in the fields of climate change, geoscience and fisheries among others. 

The topics and the dates are available in the related events below.

The events will be interpreted and recording of each of the sessions will be made available online.
