Time for a Course Correction with Climate Finance Action on All Fronts, Says WWF

In an open letter to the Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action, who met in Marrakech on the margins of the World Bank / IMF Annual Meetings, WWF called on them to help deliver the financial system that allows us to have a liveable planet

The world continues to face the effects of various conflicts, such as the war in Ukraine, along with multiple related crises – for example in energy, food, and water insecurity and the cost of living. Climate impacts are hitting all parts of the globe, especially the most vulnerable countries and regions also least capable of dealing with the effects of the climate crisis. Bringing climate change and energy to the centre of the multilateral system has never been more challenging and more urgent than in 2023.
