Based on priority commodities and CSA actions identified in the pre-2020 Roadmaps, participants worked in facilitated country groups to identify needs and opportunities for public-private sector coordination to accelerate investment and finance for CSA, aligned with NDC priorities and targets. The top priority actions needed to address challenges were identified, as were timelines and key entities that are most appropriate to lead and support the implementation of priority actions. In the final session country groups presented their pre-2020 roadmaps and private sector engagement strategies and identified concrete next steps that can be taken to turn their roadmaps into reality.
