This report is the first in a two-volume study that reviews the main public and private sector funds and mechanisms for financing low emission projects, businesses, and infrastructure in the Asia region that mitigate emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and thereby address climate change. The study aims to help Asian policymakers, public and private fund managers, banks, and even local communities identify ways to fund low-carbon development.
Findings from the report were discussed at a workshop April 2-4, 2013 at the Asian Development Bank (ADB) headquarters in Manila, Philippines. The event was organized by the Asia Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Partnership with support from the ADB, USAID, and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN).
