Donors include Belgium (€3.25m), Austria (€500,000), Norway (€1.8m), Finland (€5m), France (€5m), Germany (€30m), Switzerland (€8.1m), Sweden and the Brussels Capital ((€23.5 million).Japan: $16 billion over three years (2013 – 2015), with an additional $3billion from private sources.

Post 2012 international CC regime: Entering into new era of green global economic growth, through significant mitigation of GHG emissions and generating funding for mitigation and adaptation actions and thus creating new investment opportunities We have witnessed three economic transformations in the past century.

    7. 7. Urbanization – new issue under the convention • • • • Half of humanity ( 3.5 billion people) – live in cities today By 2030, ≈ 60% of the world’s population will live in urban areas 95 % of urban expansion in the next decades in developing world The world’s cities occupy just 2% of the Earth’s land, but account for 60-80% of energy consumption and 75% of carbon emissions • Rapid urbanization is exerting pressure on fresh water supplies, sewage, the living environment, and public health • The high density of cities can bring efficiency gains and technological innovation while reducing resource and energy consumption • Urban development will have to fundamentally change to facilitate the transition towards a green economy • Unique opportunities exist for cities to lead the greening of the global economy
