The global commitment to climate action in the Paris Agreement at COP 21 calls for innovative and accelerated climate solutions for developing countries that also drive economic growth. While promising climate-friendly innovation is occurring in energy, water, and agriculture, the path to scale these initiatives too often involves lengthy timelines.

Join a high-level discussion to explore how the World Bank Group works with local partners to quickly scale novel clean technologies and businesses to address both climate and development needs.

Speakers include CEOs from seven of the World Bank's Climate­ Innovation C­ente­rs and senior representatives from:

  • U.S. Department of Energy
  • United Nations Foundation
  • UK’s Department for International Development (DFID)
  • International Finance Corporation (IFC)
  • World Bank’s Trade & Competitiveness Global Practice
  • World Bank’s Climate Change Cross-Cutting Solution Area
  • World Bank’s Energy & Extractives Global Practice
