Effective climate policy needs dialogue. In a series of online events, topics of international financing for the energy transition in the Asian region were discussed in a national and supranational context.
The first phase of the project aimed to raise awareness that export of coal technology supported by export credit agencies is not compatible with the Paris Agreement and to raise awareness of transparency and reporting requirements for export credit agencies. Online dialogues with China, Japan, and South Korea were conducted with the support of the German missions in the three countries. Three successful events were held online.
In the second phase, the project placed a special focus on better aligning international energy finance from three countries with the Paris target by facilitating bilateral and multilateral dialogues in South Korea, Japan, and Indonesia. Using a similar format, country representatives from all three countries, as well as external experts, discussed tailored options for promoting climate-resilient foreign financing in line with the countries' self-declarations in three additional online events.
