Development finance plays a significant role in financing countries’ green economic growth. CPI works with development finance institutions to assess the effectiveness of their policies, instruments, investments, and portfolios, while identifying risks and opportunities. This includes work with the International Development Finance Club (IDFC), a group of 26 national and regional development banks from all over the world, to map their green finance commitments and provide recommendations for how they can align their operations and strategies with the Paris Agreement.
This paper focuses on enhancing the role that National Development Banks play in supporting the acceleration of climate-smart urban infrastructure investment.
This study identifies the changes the Paris Agreement implies for the role of Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) – specifically members of the IDFC – and how they may implement these changes through a targeted set of activities.
