During COP25 in Madrid, Spain, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Green Bank Design Platform (GBDP) will host an event on Green Banks. The event will showcase countries’ progress toward accelerating NDC implementation by crowding in low carbon, climate resilient investment through Green Banks and other dedicated green finance facilities. This event will highlight the progress of several countries in planning, establishing, and capitalizing national and subnational Green Banks for country-driven climate finance.
The event will also discuss how the Green Bank Design Platform can be an invaluable resource for countries at all stages of green bank development. The Platform will connect countries exploring green finance institutions with technical assistance providers suited to their particular needs, provide information on best practices, host regional and global workshops, and increase interest in and resources for Green Bank development.
The event is being organized by the Coalition for Green Capital, Natural Resources Defense Council, and Rocky Mountain Institute.
