Public Financial Institutions and the Low-Carbon Transition: Five Case studies on Low-Carbon Infrastructure and Project Investment

23 November 2014 - By : Ian COCHRAN, Phd / Romain HUBERT / Virginie Marchal (OECD) / Robert Youngman (OECD)

The analysis is structured around three principal areas of intervention: the use of traditional and innovative approaches to link low-carbon projects with finance through enhancing access to capital; facilitating risk reduction and sharing; improving the capacity of market actors; and shaping broader market practices and conditions.

The results of this study were presented during a side-event at COP19 in Warsaw Poland as well as to the OECD Working Party on Climate, Investment and Development.
