Investing in People and Learning to Foster a Climate Resilient and Green Transition

How Cheap Money Can Save the World @SB50

Summary

Concessional finance has the potential to substantially speed the transition from fossil-fueled power generation to renewable energy in developing countries. That, in turn, could potentially slow or even halt the rate of CO2 emissions growth in these less developed countries. This interactive session will introduce the audience to the concept of concessional finance in the context of the energy transition of developing countries, explain how it has been mobilized so far, and explore where it should go next.
