The CFLI, in partnership with the Association of European Development Finance Institutions (EDFI) and the Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF), has released a working paper on strengthening investment conditions for private climate finance in emerging markets.
Designed to help expedite negotiations between parties on sustainable infrastructure investments, Attracting Private Climate Finance to Emerging Markets: Private Sector Considerations for Policymakers identifies key factors considered by investors when reviewing emerging market investment opportunities in clean energy, sustainable urban transport, climate-smart water and waste, green buildings, and sustainable land use.
These factors have the potential to:
- Catalyze new private climate finance at scale;
- Address areas where market- and sector-specific guidance is fragmented; and
- Align with current global and national policy priorities to invest in a sustainable and inclusive recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The working paper offers a menu of potential policy-change opportunities to all countries, regardless of current investment environment, future opportunities for sustainable infrastructure growth, or position on the path to a low-carbon economy.
These private sector considerations for policymakers build on the CFLI’s Investment Readiness Guidelines a resource designed to facilitate discussion among financial institutions, project developers, investors, and governments about strengthening enabling environments for clean energy investment in emerging markets.
