Organizer Name: OECD - Development Assistance Committee
The OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), in collaboration with the COP28 Presidency, will convene this high-level roundtable to discuss policies, programs, and instruments to better support fragile contexts in their climate action efforts. Climate change and environmental degradation compound fragility, driving displacement and exacerbating tensions over scarce resources. Fragility may further fuel climate change and loss of biodiversity through unsustainable management of resources, affecting governments’ abilities to meet the challenges they are facing and to attract climate finance for that purpose. The roundtable will focus on identifying concrete steps to ensure that development assistance for climate action breaks this vicious circle, leaving no one behind, and that it offers solutions to overcome barriers to accessing finance and technical support.
