In many climate finance hotspots there is a severe lack of capacity – be it in research, product development, investment, or other aspects of the enabling environment.
There is an urgent need for more skilled professionals, particularly in emerging markets, to deliver the data, analysis and products that will enable the flow of finance into regions critical for green development and the climate transition.
Arc plans to establish a global network of Climate Finance Intelligence Hubs where professionals are trained and employed to carry out vital research and analysis on corporate climate transition plans. This will be inputted into a trusted data warehouse rooted in climate science, helping to enhance financial decision making and stimulate capital injections into new opportunities.
The skills gained through the program will help to create a new generation of climate finance professionals.
THE CONVERSATION TOUR
The exact locations, structures and deliverables of the Hubs will be shaped through discussion with local practitioners and market leaders, as part of our ‘Global Conversation Tour’.
We will be visiting several countries in each of the following regions: Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and North Africa, and Asia-Pacific
In each location we will host workshops and meetings, allowing for a collaborative process to test and refine Climate Arc’s strategy
Ahead of each visit, Arc will commission research into the local climate finance ecosystem and use it to design our process and discussions
EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
We will share more details of our events and workshops as they are released. Come back soon to find out more.
Everything Arc does will be in partnership with the community. If you are interested in contributing to the Hubs – whether by conducting research, convening events, hosting a hub or in another role – please reach out to Stephanie Akinyelure, Global Hubs Lead, email@example.com.Contact Stephanie
