Trust-building and diversity. These are the keywords characterising this year’s F20 Climate Solutions Dinner which took place on November 4 in the context of the COP26 in Glasgow. In an authentic atmosphere, 25 international participants from foundations, business, politics, civil society as well as COP negotiators attended the dinner to exchange perspectives on the results of the G20 Summit in Rome, the expectations on COP26 and the consequences and needs for a truly Paris and SDG aligned green recovery.
The fruitful discussions further focused on an outlook regarding the next years G7 Presidency of Germany and the G20 Presidency of Indonesia. The dinner highlighted the importance of informal exchange opportunities and networking at the UN Climate Summit. The conversations were held under Chatham House Rules and gave deeper insights into the engine room of the COP26 negotiations, accentuating the topics of Article 6, increased ambitions, sustainable finance, loss and damage or the climate-biodiversity-health-food nexus.
