Access to finance for green investments

For green financing to become an attractive business model in EaP countries, there is a need to develop supportive policy frameworks, create sufficient demand from borrowers, and motivate local commercial banks to invest in the required staff development and capacity. Hence programme objectives are: assessing the lessons learnt so far from the operation of environmental credit lines supported by international financial institutions in some EaP countries; developing recommendations for local commercial banks on better disbursing such credit lines; facilitating international dialogue on opportunities for green investments in the region; contribution to knowledge-sharing and exchange.
