Join us for a collaborative session related to climate finance roadmaps and how capital markets can be used to mitigate social and climate risk.
Panel 1- Ireland's International Climate Finance Roadmap – an opportunity for international cooperation with multilateral partners?
- Combining the goals on climate financing from both, Ireland and the World Bank, what are areas of potential collaboration? Where does the panel see the greatest challenges?
- What kind of collaboration is useful and which ones are not useful (e.g. market standards, joint projects, exchange of data, technical assistance, etc) including relevant case studies
Panel 2 - How can capital markets be used to mitigate social and climate risk? A discussion of impact bonds, catastrophe bonds and the "pay for success" structure
- Opportunity to present and compare structures such as impact bonds, CAT bonds versus 'regular bonds'
- "Pay for success" structures of impact bonds – are they are a feasible instrument for 'mainstream capital markets' or even for larger volume transactions?
- What are the implications of too many outstanding CAT and impact bonds for regulators, investors and issuers?
- Are impact and CAT bonds a possible instrument for sovereign issuers? Would they have been more efficient in financing the economic impacts from recent climate related catastrophes?
Held in partnership with the World Bank and EIB.
