Increasing strategic and large-scale investments in low-and middle-income countries are required to ensure a just, equitable, and predictable low-carbon transition. Mobilizing Climate Investment Models is part of a larger initiative to identify the most promising research issues to support an actionable low-carbon transition in the Global South.
Aim: Increasing climate investment in developing countries “from billions to trillions” will require significant use of private capital, as well as the alignment of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) with the realities of climate investment instruments and institutions. Research is needed to identify the necessary connections among public development finance, private capital, export credit, and philanthropic resources. Research will be essential to quickly demonstrate and scale up low-carbon technologies and business models while enabling Global South-led innovation.
