The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance

Private investors – often supported by public policy and finance – are already channeling significant amounts of money into the low-carbon economy in countries around the world, but much more investment is needed in order to tackle the climate challenge.

Well-designed financial instruments and appropriate public support that reduce private investors’ risks and improve their financial returns could play a central role in global efforts to address the adaptation and mitigation needs of developing countries.

The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance catalyzes this process by drawing on experience and expertise from around the world to identify, design, and pilot the next generation of climate finance instruments. These instruments provide concrete solutions to financing challenges faced in real projects, and can build new markets, attract new investors, and help to unlock billions of dollars in new climate-friendly investment in developing countries. Learn more about how it works.

Based on proposals from around the world, The Lab has identified, developed and delivered instruments with potential to drive investment in developing countries at scale. See all the ideas.
