COP20: Thomas Heller, Climate Policy Initiative

COP20 (10/12/14) – Thomas Heller talks to RTCC about how his organisation’s work on climate finance is being received globally. He gives his thoughts on the effectiveness of current climate policy and how this relates to rapid economic growth in Asia. He discusses the ability of the GCF to leverage private capital and current projects working on this issue, including his work with the Global Climate Finance Lab. He finishes by expressing his optimism on changes happening outside of the UNFCCC process, particularly the rate of technological change in areas vital to tackling climate change.
