Webinar - Blended finance for climate action: good value for money?
On 8 February, Eurodad and ActionAid released "Blended finance for climate action: good value for money", one of the first reports exploring the role of blended finance for climate action from a public interest and civil society perspective.
During the 2023 United Nations climate conference in Dubai (COP28), the issue of ‘blended finance’ for climate action was a major focus at the inaugural Business and Philanthropy Climate Forum. This event saw global funds – the Green Climate Fund, Allied Climate Partners and Allianz Global Investors – collectively announce the mobilisation of US$ 5 billion through several blended finance structures, bringing together philanthropies, development finance institutions (DFIs), and the private and public sectors.
What is blended finance and what role does – and should – it have in climate action? This webinar will cover the key messages of the report, and explore the challenges and opportunities that this approach presents. The event aims to initiate a debate on the topic, facilitate knowledge sharing and build capacity among CSOs to engage with these complex discussions.
