Combatting climate change and achieving the SDGs require vast investments in sustainable projects in developing countries, but funding is falling short. The private sector is eager to significantly increase its sustainable investments, but is often constrained by avoidable obstacles. Private investors lack access to crucial public sector information, and feel insufficiently insured against the risks of investing in developing economies.
The Investor Leadership Network, in collaboration with The Rockefeller Foundation, created a Blended Finance Blueprint, proposing seven specific actions the blended finance community can take to reduce risk and increase sustainable investments in emerging and frontier economies. The Blueprint asks public sector actors like multilateral development banks (MDBs), governments, and foundations to change how they involve the private sector in financing global sustainable development.
