It seeks to provide guidance for the Bank’s dialogue with governments, civil society, and the private sector concerning regional and national climate policy agendas. It also integrates public and private financing and capacity building into a single framework for climate action, and orients the Bank’s efforts to strengthen and consolidate its own capacities, readiness and comparative advantages. Finally, it provides a mechanism to mainstream climate change sustainability objectives into the Bank’s operations.
