Collective Climate Ambition - A Joint Statement at COP26 by the Multilateral Development Banks
Climate change, and the parallel crisis of environmental degradation, are critical factors affecting the development prospects of countries, businesses, and households, and threatening to reverse years of development progress. Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) have proven to be essential partners in global efforts to manage the urgent transitions climate change will involve, through the financial, technical, and knowledge support we provide, tailored to our clients’ unique domestic and international circumstances.
To set the world on a sustainable development path requires a significant expansion and acceleration of climate action across countries and economic sectors, taking into account the findings of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released in August 2021.
We welcome the growing ambition reflected in the new Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and we will continue to support the delivery of these plans in developing countries, building on our track records of supporting low-carbon, climate-resilient, and nature-based solutions for sustainable development. We will also contribute more broadly through our joint and individual efforts to align our financing flows with the Paris Agreement and in our work supporting our clients to develop ambitious Long Term Strategies (LTSs).
