The Working GroupThe Finance Working Group supports developing countries in accelerating investment into low emission development through peer learning, targeted technical collaboration, and innovative public private partnerships. Expert advisory and early mover support is also available to assist countries with innovative approaches to scaling up private investment in their LEDS priorities.
The challenge Developing countries face unique challenges in attracting private sector investment into the sectors necessary to accelerate the transition to a low carbon economy, such as energy and infrastructure. However with sufficient financial support, they also have a unique opportunity to become high economic growth, low carbon economies. How we meet the challenge The Finance Working Group supports the acceleration of investment into developing countries’ low emission development strategies by focusing on three core pillars:
- Finance mobilization technical support and communities of practice
- Finance mobilization public-private dialogue, partnership and peer learning
- Finance mobilization knowledge tools and products.
Communities of practice The Communities of Practice aim to work together on real-time policy, technical, and market solutions related to low emission development. In the longer term, the participants in the Finance Working Group's Communities of Practice will benefit from better access to and longer term engagement with sources of technical support (which is free for them at the point of access). Find out more about our Communities of Practice in the next tab, 'Signature projects'.

Though the LEDS GP’s Remote Expert Assistance on LEDS (REAL) service, the Finance Working Group supports requests from developing country LEDS teams, including government agencies and consultants, technical institutions, and NGOs that are working directly with country governments to plan and implement their LEDS. The Finance Working Group can provide targeted support on finance issues to governments upon request, for up to 40 hours of an expert’s time. In particular the Finance Working Group can offer support on: developing LEDS finance plans; identifying and developing ‘bankable’ projects such as nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs); and understanding and accessing international climate finance including the Green Climate Fund.
