This paper sees Nick Robins, co-director of the UNEP Inquiry, trace the evolution of the ‘networked solution’ to finance that came together at Paris, linking the formal negotiations with a broader set of actions by financial regulators, by financial institutions and also by civil society. It also explores the creative dynamic between France’s efforts to stimulate action within its own domestic financial system, and the international steps harnessing the financial system for climate security.
