11. SOUNDBITE (English) Mark Carney, Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance, United Nations:
“A pool of that capital is being carved out for the transition in emerging and developing economies. And not in some distant point in the future, but in this decade. Up until today there was not enough money in the world to fund the transition, and this is a watershed.”

13. SOUNDBITE (English) Mark Carney, Special Envoy on Climate Action and Finance, United Nations:
“We need blended finance facilities that don’t mobilize fractions of private capital for the public dollar, but multiples, and multiples in double digits for the public money. There are facilities that are being developed that can do this. We need to scale them dramatically. Quite frankly, facilities that do not scale up to a hundred billion a year in additional flows, aren’t relevant to the scale of the problem.”
