Bridging funding gaps for climate and sustainable development: Pitfalls, progress and potential

Bridging funding gaps for climate and sustainable development: Pitfalls, progress and potential

Key messages

  • Policy reform is required to more accurately value natural capital and incentivize green investments through aligned subsidies, supportive financial measures, and risk mitigation support.
  • A centralized system that synthesizes evidence and connects projects to investors would both improve awareness of initiatives and funding sources, and build capacity and financial literacy.
  • Key information gaps persist in reporting, monitoring and impact assessment. Leveraging a centralized system could reduce redundancies, enhance cost-effectiveness and bridge finance gaps.
