CCAP at COP23
COP23 hosted by Fiji in Bonn, Germany
CCAP will participate 23rd Conference of Parties (COP23) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), hosted by the Government of Fiji in Bonn, Germany from November 6-17, 2017. CCAP supports the implementation of the Paris Agreement through many channels. Our International Climate Policy and Climate Finance programs promote the use of ITMOs to strengthen ambition and promote mobilizing private sector resources to leverage climate finance. Through our Oil and Gas Mitigation Program we are working closely with Mexico to assess their interest and win support for learning from best practice regulatory solutions. CCAP currently is helping to implement two NAMAs, one in Colombia focused on transit oriented development and a second which aims to catalyze distributed solar generation in the Philippines, both supported by the NAMA Facility. Additionally, CCAP focuses on mitigation of SLCPs both in the waste sector through continuing work with the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and we will be participating in the CCAC’s High Level Assembly on the margins of COP23.
COP 23 Side Events
Thursday, November 16, 2017
11:30-1:00, Bonn Zone, Meeting Room 12
In this event, speakers will highlight innovative ways the GCF is catalyzing private sector development in low-carbon, climate-resilient solutions. Through a moderated discussion, panelists will explore strategic issues that should inform the GCF’s future direction, including ways to enhance private sector engagement and how best to improve access to the fund. Panelists will reflect on the comparative advantage of the GCF within the broader multilateral climate finance architecture, and the role the GCF can play in driving private sector action and building capacities in areas not adequately served by existing support channels.
The event draws on CCAP’s recent paper, Mobilizing Private Sector Investment for NDCs.

Raising Ambition Through International Carbon Markets by IETA
Thursday, November 8, 2017
18:30-20:00, Bonn Zone, IETA Business Hub
IETA’s side event will explore on the question how a carbon market framework could incentivize deepening and broadening the scope of NDCs and what role the private sector can play. CCAP’s Leila Yim Surratt will present on our recent policy brief, Using Transfers to Enhance Ambition over the NDC Cycles, describing how ITMOs might support increased ambition over the NDC cycles and towards achievement of long-term strategies, and our recent work with the World Bank mapping party and private sector views on article 6 and elaborating ITMO implementation scenarios and steps that could benefit from pilot approaches.
