The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance
The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance identifies, develops, and launches innovative finance instruments that can drive billions in private investment to action on climate change and sustainable development.
The Lab is led by its members, who include over 70 institutions in government, development finance, philanthropy, and the private sector
Since 2014, the Lab has launched 55 solutions that have mobilized over $2.5 billion to address climate change.
The instruments seek USD 380 million from commercial, concessional, and philanthropic investors for sustainable energy access, food systems, and urban infrastructure.
