Towards a green investment policy framework


This report aims to advise governments on how to create and improve domestic enabling conditions to shift and scale up private sector investments in green infrastructure, as part of their agenda to finance their transition to a low carbon, climate resilient economy. The target audience are national policymakers and their advisors in developed and developing countries, who are looking to increase private sector participation to finance a transition to low carbon and climate resilient development. Section 3 outlines five key elements of a policy framework to mobilize private sector investment: 1) goal setting and aligning policy goals across and within levels of government; 2) reforming policies to enable investment and strengthen market incentives; 3) establishing specific financial policies that provide transitional support for new green technologies; 4) harnessing and scaling up resources; and 5) establishing practices that promote green business and consumer behavior, such as information and education policies.
