Financing Low Emission Green Growth in Asia

This video provides highlights of interviews with international experts, policymakers, and private sector representatives on the topic of financing for low-emission projects and initiatives in Asia. An estimated USD 140-175 billion annually will be required for developing countries to effectively mitigate the effects of climate change by 2030. The Asia LEDS Partnership, in cooperation with the USAID Low Emissions Asian Development (LEAD) program and other donors convened workshops in 2014 and 2013 that brought together government officials from developing Asian countries with commercial bankers, global climate fund managers, and other experts from the public and private sectors to learn about existing and emerging mechanisms to finance low-carbon, climate-resilient growth in Asia. The full set of expert interviews are available on the Asia LEDS Partnership website.
