Emerging Market and Developing Economies have enormous investment needs in climate mitigation and adaptation. Most countries in the Global South also face significant impacts from climate change that need to be accounted for by the financial sector. Monetary and financial authorities as well as banks and other financial institutions in developing and emerging economies are increasingly seeking to address sustainability risks and scale up sustainable lending and investment.

The eBook explores how the public sector (public banks and central banks) and the private sector (institutional investors and banks) can develop new policies, approaches and instruments and team up to scale up sustainable finance and investment in the Global South.


For the virtual launch event of the eBook, editors Dirk Schoenmaker (CEPR Fellow and Erasmus University Rotterdam) and Ulrich Volz (CEPR Sustainable Finance RPN member and SOAS, University of London) moderated two panels, exploring 'How to scale up sustainable finance and investment in the Global South?' and 'Developments on the ground'
