PRIVATE CAPITAL MOBILIZATION
Closing the climate and sustainable development financing gap in developed and developing markets.
ILN’s Private Capital Moblization initiative aims to direct more private capital into the markets, technologies, and themes that are critical to support the Paris Agreement and achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Through this initiative, ILN members collaborate across sectors to improve the pipeline of investment-ready, sustainability-aligned projects from emerging and developing countries, as well as to improve the partnerships, vehicles and platforms in the blended finance ecosystem.
In October 2021, ILN and The Rockefeller Foundation published a ‘blueprint’ to increase blended finance partnerships titled, “Investing in Emerging and Frontier Economies: How Blended Finance can make the most of public funding.” The report identifies seven specific actions that the public sector can take over the short, medium, and long term to increase private investors’ ability to participate in blended finance partnerships.
In June 2022, the Investor Leadership Network and The Sustainable Markets Initiative published a follow-up report, “Blended Finance, MDB Optimization, and Private Capital Mobilization: Recommendations for Policymakers,“calling on G7 and G20 policymakers to accelerate their momentum around the scaling up of private capital mobilization into emerging markets via blended finance.
