The OECD Environment Directorate has launched a new project on effects of public policy conditions on leveraging private financing for environmental and climate mitigation investments. Drawing upon a wide variety of datasets the project will seek to identify those policy conditions which result in increased private finance flows. This will include the analysis of fiscal incentives such as investment grants and tax preferences, as well as more general environmental policy instruments (e.g. feed-in-tariffs and renewable portfolio standards). The cost-effectiveness and fiscal implications of different measures will be assessed.
The project was launched in January 2013. For more information, please contact Nick Johnstone, Ivan Haščič or Jérôme Silva at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
