Transforming Financial Systems for Climate Approved October 2018 Est. implementation period 7.0 years
Providing loans and technical assistance in 17 developing countries across Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean to create self-sustaining markets in energy efficiency, renewable energy and climate resilience.

The private sector in these two regions still perceives sustainable energy and climate resilience as expensive and complex, as the environmental advantage of more resilient investments and practices is not well understood. Efforts to demonstrate the benefits of financing these areas are required to reach a critical mass and upscale the commercial viability of climate projects.

The main objectives of this programme are to scale up climate finance in the targeted countries, to redirect financial flows, and reinforce the capacity of local partners in climate-related sectors. It will do this by providing loans through local partner financial institutions to borrowers in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, housing, agriculture, forestry and water and waste management. It will also include a technical support component.

The programme has an estimated lifespan of 20 years.
