How We Work

Our services include building programs and expertise through a wide range of global and regional workshops, technical assistance, developing case studies, guidance documents, peer learning, and hosting webinars.

To achieve its core objectives, the Finance Working Group will work primarily on three main pillars: fostering private sector investment, developing and showcasing financing instruments and innovation, and enabling peer learning and knowledge sharing. In all its activities, the Finance Working Group strives to respond to the countries’ needs and to prioritize leveraging action from the private sector and transitioning to on-the-ground implementation, moving beyond dialogue to action and transactions. To achieve this, the Finance Working Group will support piloting ideas and pioneering actions.
