“It is also another important marker on the journey where investors urge all countries to ratify the Paris Agreement.
“Likewise, it is well timed to coincide with today’s High Level Ministerial Dialogue on Climate Finance at COP22 in Marrakesh, a crucial plenary where Parties must develop a long term vision sufficient to secure the pace and scale of climate finance required to realise the low carbon transition in emerging and developing countries.”
