It is divided into four parts: (i) sectoral trends and the need to increase cement production; (ii) types of cement works and related environmental issues, particularly climate change; (iii) other multilateral development banks approaches with respect to financing cement factories and current focus of the cement sector on climate change; and (iv) the IDB proposed approach.
