Last year, IFC studied the national commitments submitted by 21 emerging market countries as part of the Paris Agreement, and found $23 trillion in investment opportunity if they achieve their targets by 2030.
This report builds from that effort by providing information for investors, banks and companies about the most attractive climate investment opportunities, while offering governments a set of best practice policies and measures that have been proven to attract private investment.
The way to deliver on the Paris climate pledges is to create vibrant markets for climate business. The good news is that many countries are already making progress. Over $1 trillion in investment is already flowing annually into climate-related projects; with the right policy frameworks in place, trillions more will be triggered.
