Second Workshop on Long-term Finance (Information and Documents)
Information on the Second Workshop on Long-term Finance, Cape Town, 1-3 October

As part of the UNFCCC work programme on long-term climate finance mandated by the UN Climate Change Conference in Durban last year, the second transparent and interactive workshop on long-term finance has taken place in Cape Town 1-3 October. The second workshop built on the discussions held during the first workshop in July in Bonn. While the first workshop mainly concentrated on understanding the general nature and overview of long-term climate finance, the second workshop was designed to generate more in-depth discussion on its sources and enabling environments. The Cape Town event was also an opportunity for Parties, private sector and civil society stakeholders to express their views on these issues.

In-depth discussions have taken place on important sub-topics such as new and innovative sources of climate finance, various approaches and strategies to mobilze climate finance from various sources, and ways to strengthen the capacity of developing countries for improved access to climate finance.

To ensure full transparency and inclusiveness, central parts of the second workshop have been webcast live and are now available as video on demand, and external participants will be able to put questions to the presenters, and leave comments on UNFCCC's social media platforms.
