Accessing Finance for Green Growth and LEDS: Workshop Report
This report summarizes presentations and topics presented at The Asia LEDS Partnership Workshop on Accessing Finance for Green Growth and LEDS that took place March 12-14, 2014 in Hanoi, Vietnam. The event brought together approximately 150 government officials from Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, as well as experts and representatives from global climate change funds, development organizations, state and private banks, and businesses. The objectives of the event were to support learning and exchange on the challenges facing policymakers and implementers in accessing climate finance, and improve understanding of how to use climate finance to leverage resources to scale up implementation of low carbon and green growth strategies.
The workshop was hosted by Vietnam Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), with support from Asia LEDS Partnership members including the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), SWITCH-Asia Network Facility, World Bank, Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP). The U.S. Agency for International Development Low Emissions Asian Development (USAID LEAD) program, as Secretariat for the Asia LEDS Partnership, provided technical and logistical support.
This workshop was the second Asia LEDS Partnership event focused on climate finance, following a regional workshop in Manila in April 2013 to promote better understanding among officials from developing Asian countries, commercial bankers, fund managers, and green project developers on mechanisms to finance low-emission growth.
