Instrument Description

Lines of credit (or grants) typically provided to governments to pay for the increased cost of emergency response and humanitarian assistance.


Liquidity instruments are typically concessional, as they are intended to offer immediate assistance to those actors directly impacted by a climate crisis who likely have limited resources. Most facilities are direct transfers of funds to the affected party (government, business, individual). Some may be lines of credit, though repayment terms are likely to be limited to return of capital, or very favorable (below market) interest rates.

This project has been developed in partnership with the Global Center on Adaptation
