A two-part in-session workshop on long-term climate finance was held on 11 and 12 June 2014, in conjunction with the UNFCCC Climate Change Conference held in Bonn, Germany. This in-session workshop was organized as follow up to pdf-icon COP's decision to continue deliberations on long-term finance, focusing on inter alia: strategies and approaches for scaled-up climate finance from 2014-2020; cooperation on enhanced enabling environments and support for readiness activities; and needs for support to developing countries.
