This conference agenda includes descriptions of the themes and issues for discussion considered by governments, stakeholders and experts during an OECD May 2022 public conference. The Conference considered a new topic — the application of the art. 2.1(c) finance flows alignment under the Paris Agreement to the 2500 investment treaties in force, as addressed in a separate paper. It also considered the impact of investment treaties on government “policy space” to adopt new regulations to achieve climate goals, taking account of specificities of the climate crisis.
The videos of the conference sessions on investment treaties and climate change are available here.
