San Giorgio Group Focus

Effective green finance is critical to the success of low-emissions development. However, significant challenges remain including how to scale up actions to meet global needs, how to design risk-return arrangements to attract public and private capital, and how to disburse climate funds effectively. The San Giorgio Group focus includes:

  • Effective investment: systematic analysis of case studies and tracking of existing green investments
  • Ensuring learning: distil lessons from the evolving financing practices
  • Scaling up: provide insights on how public resources can be spent wisely to mobilize private finance

The San Giorgio Group work focuses on a systematic analysis of project, program, and instrument case studies to identify best practices for effective public and private investment, with a special focus on how risks faced by investors are addressed.
