Unlocking private climate finance in emerging markets private sector considerations for policymakers

Private capital plays an important role in supporting the green recovery and creating robust, low-carbon, climate-resilient markets around the world. That is why today, the Climate Finance Leadership Initiative (CFLI), in partnership with the Association of European Development Finance Institutions (EDFI) and the Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF), released a new report that provides a menu of potential policy options emerging markets can put forward to accelerate private investment in sustainable infrastructure projects.


This report highlights the policies that governments in emerging markets can advance with support from business and the international community to facilitate the mobilization of private sector investment in clean energy, low-carbon mass transit, climate friendly water and waste systems, green buildings, and sustainable land use. Data and the experience of emerging markets shows us that these policies work. Supporting investment in sustainable infrastructure, by strengthening conditions for private finance, is critical in the run-up to COP26, helping to build momentum and set the stage for a successful summit that further accelerates global progress on climate change.
