Emerging Markets and Developing Economies (EMDEs) are facing numerous hurdles in mobilizing the necessary transition financing for decarbonization, including fiscal constraints, restricted access to private capital, and a shortage of expertise in project development and financing. Ramping up blended finance efforts is critical for this transition.
This panel will discuss:
- some practical examples of successful blended finance transactions; and,
- the role that financial regulators and supervisors can play in creating a conducive and stable environment for these transactions.
