Climate change financing will be high on the agenda for the Durban UN climate change conference. Taking steps to fulfil the global commitment to scale up funding for developing countries to $100 billion a year by 2020 is seen as essential for building trust. As the time draws near for countries to announce their post-2012 financing pledges, there are big questions for Australia: what might be our share in the global effort? What are suitable financing sources for Australia?

What are the roles for private finance, new public finance sources and the expanding aid budget? A report by the Centre for Climate Economics and Policy (authors: Frank Jotzo, Jonathan Pickering, Peter Wood) will be released. Representatives from World Vision Australia (David Lansley) and the Department for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (Clare Walsh) will give their perspectives and take part in a panel discussion.

Speakers include:

Frank Jotzo, Crawford School
Jonathan Pickering, ANU CAPPE
Peter Wood, Crawford School
David Lansley, World Vision Australia
Clare Walsh, Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency
Chair: Howard Bamsey (ANU)
