18 October 2016 - 19 October 2016
Bogota, Colombia

Stakeholder Consultation Process

The Finance Committee of the Sistema Nacional de Cambio Climático (the National Coordinating Body for Climate Change) and the Planning Ministry (Departamento Nacional de Planeación) of Colombia, with the technical support of the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Grupo de Financiamiento Climático para Latinoamérica y el Caribe (GFLAC) held three sessions of stakeholder consultation to receive feedback on a mockup of an online tool to measure, report, and verify climate finance in Colombia. The tool, to be hosted by the Planning Ministry, will report information on international and national, public and private sources of climate finance. It will be launched in January 2016. Gathering feedback from actors of government entities, private sector, civil society, and international organizations is fundamental to ensure that the design of the online tool will address the country’s needs.. The development of the tool and its consultation process is led by WRI as part of the Readiness Program for the GCF and other Sources of Climate Finance implemented in partnership with UNEP and UNDP, with the financial support of BMUB.
