Tuesday, April 4th: 15:00 - 16:00

HOST: Climate Policy Initiative

Finance is a key challenge to scaling up sustainable energy access in developing countries. While the capital exists, redirecting investment from high-carbon to low-carbon pathways requires innovative solutions that balance risks and returns and appeal to the private sector. Fortunately, there are a growing number of effective solutions that have already increased energy access and energy efficiency. This session will showcase financial instruments drawn from the Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance and related programs with the potential to drive billions of dollars in investment by addressing persistent barriers to investment.
