Background

This is the second annual dialogue organized by the CDDE Facility across government officials from planning, finance, environment, climate and local government related ministries, as well as members of parliament, representatives of civil society and development partners. The first dialogue was held on 19-20 October 2010 and articulated the Bangkok Call for Action. This second regional dialogue will benefit from high level government representation and provide an opportunity for exchange senior leadership of concerned ministries.

This second dialogue will continue to strengthen lesson learning across countries on the management of climate related finance, as well as on country level preparations for managing scaled-up climate finance in the coming years. An outcome document will be prepared, articulating recommendations for further strengthening of the effectiveness of climate financing instruments. This outcome document will feed directly into the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, 29 November – 1 December, as well as other international processes such as the UNFCCC 17th Conference of the Parties in Durban, South Africa, 28 November - 9 December.

The Climate Change Finance and Development Effectiveness Dialogue on 12-13 September will provide maximum space for national stakeholders to articulate their views and share their experiences. There will be fifteen participating countries from the Asia Pacific region. A range of country analyses and cutting edge policy work will provide inputs to the agenda for discussion, including emerging developments on national level climate fiscal frameworks and climate related public expenditure and institutional reviews.
