Temptation to invest in Turkey’s coal sector will test President Xi’s commitment to climate leadership
China may be halting construction of coal-fired power at home but abroad it’s still investing in coal, even as it pushes aggressively into renewable energy markets.

Ayrıklaşma (decoupling) konusu bu günlerde gündemden düşmüyor. Bu nedenle daha önce bu konuda kaleme aldığım yazıları paylaşmak istedim.

Yakın zamanda yayımlanan kısa interaktifi Türkçe’ye kazandırdım: “Büyük Ayrıklaşma” (veyahut ayrışma da uygun düşebilir).
My new article (in German) on private sector climate finance and Turkey has been published by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Foundation / Mein neuer Kurzartikel wurde von Konrad Adenauer Stiftung veröffentlicht. Finden sie es hier oder lesen sie unten.
Just released: “Final Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate Related Financial Disclosures“. I made an unofficial summary here (pdf): https://www.slideshare.net/cemgundogan/unofficial-summary-of-tcdf-recommendations-2017
I am currently authoring the first guide to climate finance with a particular focus on Green Climate Fund in Turkish language in order to raise awareness and capacity on related issues. Climate finance is an area that was almost overlooked in Turkey until the Paris Agreement’s emergence. In the recent years, I have been writing about the issue in various outlets (i.e. this one) to shed a light and currently drafting a more structured guide for the attention of all interested stakeholders.
