Oct. 25, 2017, 9:46 p.m.


ADB is making strides in private sector participation within its portfolio for the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), leveraging concessional public funds to mobilize private sector investments for climate action.

Aside from the private sector projects within Investment Plans, ADB through the Dedicated Private Sector Programs under the Clean Technology Fund is channeling over $100 million directly into private sector investments in geothermal energy development, renewable energy minigrids, and other projects. ADB will also be implementing an adaptation project through the Private Sector Set-Asides under the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience.

This publication presents an overview of ADB’s experience in building a CIF private sector portfolio, highlighting how funding has been able to encourage greater private sector investment in climate-relevant sectors by using innovative financial instruments to address risks.
