CCICED SPS on Green Finance Launched in Beijing


The inception meeting of CCICED Special Policy Study (SPS) on Green Finance was launched in Beijing on the morning of October 24, 2019. Mr. Scott Vaughan, International Chief Advisor of CCICED, hosted the meeting. More than 30 participants, including Mr. Zhang Junjie, Deputy International Team Leader of the SPS and Director of Environmental Research Center at Duke Kunshan University, Chinese and international experts, and CCICED partners, attended the meeting.

The SPS research team presented the background, goals and objectives of the SPS at the inception meeting which marks the launch of the SPS. Experts had heated discussions around the scope, research questions, analytic framework, and focus of the SPS, which made positive contribution to future research of the SPS. Consensus around key issues, such as overall research plans, task assignment, and key time and dates for the SPS, was reached, and future works and major activities were planned at the meeting.
CCICED launched this SPS in 2019 based on the research outcomes and policy recommendations of the CCICED SPS on Green Finance Reform and Green Transformation in 2015, taking into consideration recent progress of China’s environment and development and practical needs during the process. Focusing on conservation finance, this SPS will conduct forward-looking research in the next two years, and will discuss possible application of international experiences in China. It would propose policy recommendations for CBD COP 15 and UNFCCC COP 26 next year, for the resolution declaring 2021-2030 the UN Decade for Ecosystem Restoration, and for promoting future development of green finance policies in China.
