Achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement will require the mobilization of a large number of resources over the coming decades. These resources will be allocated to the development and implementation of suitable initiatives, new disruptive technologies, large-scale green infrastructures and novel methods of production and resources management. To achieve this critical transformation, it is essential to establish an efficient framework to channel financial support from private and public sources indistinctively. This Symposium offers a platform for debate and discussion of the opportunities and challenges for the achievement of a green and sustainable economy, characterized by its inclusiveness and resilience.
