Join GCF states and provinces and partners for an evening in celebration of subnational innovation at COP21, Paris. The event is a unique opportunity to learn about how GCF member states and provinces and partners have advanced commitments to build robust jurisdictional programs to protect forests and climate while enhancing livelihoods. In particular, GCF members have been implementing commitments made in the Rio Branco Declaration signed at the 2014 GCF Annual Meeting, in which GCF members agreed to reduce deforestation 80% by 2020, contingent upon the receipt of international financing.
The event program will include a schedule of announcements from Governors and other high level representatives followed by a networking cocktail reception with appetizers and beverages. Interpretation will be provided throughout the meeting for: English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
The event is free, but attendees must register to attend.
