3rd International Conference on Climate Finance ICCF 2021 (Virtual)



Climate change is the greatest threat to mankind in the twenty-first century. It is a global issue that needs to be addressed with concerted efforts from all countries and stakeholders. While some developed countries are held responsible for causing climate change, some of the less endowed countries are highly vulnerable to its consequences. The key documents, viz. the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Kyoto Protocol (KP) and the Paris Agreement (PA) call for assistance from Annex I Parties in four key areas - mitigation, adaptation, capacity building and finance.


Considering the above, the first and the second International Conference on Climate Finance (ICCF) was held on 27-28 January 2018 and 9-10 March 2019 respectively in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Followed by the success of ICCF 2018 and 2019, the conference secretariat, Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies (BCAS) is determined to continue this effort. Hence, BCAS is organizing the 3rd International Conference on Climate Finance (3rd ICCF) 2021 on 3-4 October 2021, in collaboration with the Centre for Climate Change and Environmental Research (C3ER), BRAC University and International Centre for Climate Change and Development (ICCCAD), Independent University of Bangladesh under the Climate Finance (CF) project.


ICCF is a platform for national and international experts, scientists, researchers, practitioners and policymakers to share and exchange their knowledge and experiences on current and future climate finance issues. It offers representatives from government, non-government, academics and private sectors opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogues on Climate Finance.


The theme of the 3rd ICCF 2021 is “Climate Finance Governance: Status and Resource Mobilisation” with a focus on availability, accessibility and modality of mobilisation and utilisation of Climate Finance. This two-day conference welcomes participants to showcase project experiences, research progress and emerging policy issues through technical sessions and discussions.


The ICCF secretariat has successfully engaged international speakers and presenters in the past two conferences. Considering the travel restrictions in some parts of the world and the current COVID-19 scenario in Bangladesh, where the immunisation process is still ongoing, the conference will be held virtually this year. Conversely, this brings about an opportunity for a wider range of participation from across the world.



This virtual conference will have ample opportunities for intensive discussions, interactions and question and answer sessions and would welcome many participants from across the world. The objectives of the 3rd International Conference on Climate Finance (3rd ICCF) 2021 being held virtually are:


  • To discuss existing and potential opportunities and challenges of climate finance.
  • To enable representatives from government, donors, NGOs, SDGs, research community, and relevant sectors to exchange knowledge and experiences in climate finance.
  • To help develop methodologies and tools for climate finance issues.
  • To enhance financial contribution and political ownership of Parties to UNFCCC, improve climate governance, ensure access to climate finance and climate justice.
  • To discuss concerns of least developed countries (LDCs) and most vulnerable countries (MVCs), including accessing financial and technical resources as well in managing them.
  • A summary output of the conference will be present at CoP26 in Glasgow, UK
