This paper provides an updated methodology to support governments and development partners seeking to understand the role of public support in mobilising private finance for climate-compatible development (CCD).

 

The first aim of this methodology is to fill key information gaps about incentives and investment at country level in climate-relevant sectors.

The second is to enhance understanding of the links between public support (both domestic and international) and private investment in CCD.

Thus far, this approach has been applied to look at the energy sector in Uganda, the agriculture sector in Zambia and the transport and water and sanitation sectors in Vietnam.
