The OECD will host two official affiliated events and a buffet lunch at the Global Action Climate Summit 11:00-12:00  |  Financing climate futures: What role for cities & regions? Cities and regions are critical financial actors in the global response to climate change, and particularly in the infrastructure investments that will be required to meet the ambitions of the Paris Agreement. This expert panel will discuss how national and sub-national governments can scale up subnational financial flows to transition to low-carbon, resilient and inclusive cities, presenting the findings from OECD and World Bank studies produced as part of a joint OECD, UN Environment and World Bank project, Financing Climate Futures, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety as a contribution to the G20 Climate and Energy Action Plan for Growth.  The OECD study is developed by the OECD Centre for Entrepreneurship, SMEs, Regions and Cities.  This event is jointly organized by the OECD, the World Bank and the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).  12:10-13:00  |  Bridging the climate and inclusion agendas in cities: A conversation with OECD Champion Mayors Addressing climate change in cities absent an equity lens has the potential to exacerbate inequalities.
