Blended finance for scaling up climate and nature investments - Report of the One Planet Lab

Hans Peter Lankes

The climate crisis and biodiversity loss demand urgent action. The world needs investment into a greener capital stock, as well as better policies and innovation.

This report is concerned with mobilizing greater amounts of private and public sector capital to close the existent financing gap for climate and nature-based interventions. Mainly focused on financing sustainable infrastructure, the author outlines the primary challenges to greater public-private collaborative investment into climate solutions, and presents the case for blended finance as a key route to provoke and enable this investment. The author also poses a series a recommendations to engender scale in the blended climate finance market, including replication of proven and successful structures and using portfolio investment approaches for better risk mitigation.
