Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is a great pleasure to be here to conclude this fourth edition of Climate Finance Day. This event gives a concrete picture of what I like to call the "powerful coalition of the willing". Each and every one of us - public authorities; academics, NGO's and think tanks; corporates and financial institutions - have a part to play in this coalition. It is a shared challenge that no one can tackle alone, and you have worked during these last three days to bring tangible solutions to quickly and effectively finance the transition.
