Blended finance is a key tool to help nations meet the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, while also addressing the risks and barriers faced by investors when pursuing the opportunities these afford.

Our analysis found that the greatest opportunities for blended finance impact are in Sub-Saharan Africa and South and East Asia, with a subset of eight high impact countries alone offering USD 360 billion in clean energy investment potential by 2030.
