CVF to Host Leader’s Investment Roundtable at Davos to Drive Financing Towards Climate Prosperity Plans

14 January 2024: Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF) Secretary-General Mohamed Nasheed will host a Leader’s Investment Roundtable in Davos during the World Economic Forum next week, to drive investments into clean energy and technology in CVF countries.

H.E. Nana Akufo-Addo, President of Ghana and CVF Chair, H.E. Ranil Wickremesinghe, President of Sri Lanka, and H.E. Ken Ofori-Atta, Finance Minister for Ghana and V20 Chair, will attend the Investment Roundtable, alongside dignitaries and representatives of other CVF member countries, including Bangladesh and Tanzania.

The Investment Roundtable, to take place on Tuesday 16 January, aims to drive resource mobilization for member countries’ Climate Prosperity Plans (CPPs), as well as for the new CVF-V20 Independent Secretariat, headquartered in Ghana. Climate Prosperity Plans are development-positive project pipelines — climate-neutral conveyor belts designed to deliver investments and prosperity. Critical to their success are catalytic deals to unlock capital. Ghana, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have completed a CPP.

The roundtable will provide an opportunity for investors to collaborate with CVF-V20 member countries, exploring how the private sector can be vital partners in driving climate resilience and net zero to negative emissions in developing countries. The discussion will examine the role that groundbreaking and innovative private financing can play for projects and programmes identified in the CPPs, which counteract climate risks and leverage green transition opportunities.

An open brainstorming and discussion session will follow presentations and remarks, providing an opportunity for participants to contribute their insights, generate new ideas, and address any questions.
