Workshop on Leveraging private finance for climate action in developing countries, 12 April 2011

The Joint EPC EFC working group on international climate finance held a workshop together with expert colleagues from Environment Council in Brussels on 12 April 2011 with the objectives of increasing awareness and understanding of the particular barriers that private companies face when pursuing 'green' investments in developing countries, and identifying the scope for public support in mobilising private finance on climate action without creating unwarranted windfall gains accruing to private investors.

The workshop consisted of a series of panel sessions with invited speakers to represent the views of the financial sector, industry, and (including MDBs) and national experience regarding barriers to private investment and the most promising instruments for leveraging the necessary level of investment.
