The paper was presented at a side event:, “Developing Countries in the Driving Seat for Accelerating Green Finance” at the Warsaw Climate Change Conference
The initiative, as part of the Geneva International Finance Dialogues, is undertaking a systematic exploration of the key role of South-originating finance to invest in the transition to an inclusive, green economy.
The Geneva International Finance Dialogues, a partnership of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, International Institute for Sustainable Development and UNEP FI, in association with Bloomberg New Energy Finance and Nedbank, present a new paper “South-Originating Green Finance: Exploring the Potential.”
The paper discusses the ways that many developing countries are driving finance toward low-emission and climate-resilient development. Domestic innovations, such as feed-in tariffs, are unlocking billions in green finance and supporting large-scale advances like renewable energy systems and markets. The paper works to identify the trends and characteristics of South-originating green finance and to examine the policy measures, risk assessments and other tools used to accelerate its volume and impact.
