22 February 2017 OECD Conference Centre, Paris
OECD Roundtable on the role of national development banks, multilateral development banks and bilateral development finance institutions in scaling up investment in low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure
Participants to this roundtable meeting will discuss the role of development finance institutions in scaling up low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure and leveraging private sector capital.
The roundtable discussion will bring together a small group of leading experts from development finance institutions, development banks, as well as relevant private sector participants and will focus on developing recommendations related to strengthening mandates and targets for climate action, improving disclosure of climate risks and impacts, mobilising private climate finance, and strengthening collaboration.
Please note that participation is by invitation only.
The aim of this meeting is to discuss OECD policy recommendations to G20 governments on how to strengthen the role of development finance providers in promoting climate action and innovative financing instruments for the low-carbon and climate resilient infrastructure. These recommendations are being developed within the context of an ongoing OECD project 'Growth, Investment and the Low-carbon Transition: Constructing a Climate-resilient Future for the G20', which will contribute to Germany's G20 Presidency in 2017. A draft chapter of the OECD's report analysing the role of National Development Banks (NDBs), Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), and bilateral development finance providers is currently being prepared, and will be circulated to experts in advance of the meeting.
