Blended finance for climate action - Risks and opportunities of an emerging agenda

21 November 2023

The urgency and scale of the climate crisis has led to an agenda focused on mobilising private finance for climate. Blended finance – a combination of concessional finance with other public or private resources – is  increasingly portrayed as a key tool to achieve that goal, at a time when Global North countries have failed to meet their climate finance promises. 

Is this solution working? Is it reaching those who need resources the most? Ahead of COP28, this webinar will cover the key features of this agenda, and explore the challenges and opportunities that this approach presents.
