Barbara Buchner, Senior Director, was invited to speak on the role of Development Finance Institutions and Development Banks (DFIs and DBs) in scaling up green and climate investments on September 5th in Frankfurt at the first-ever gathering of 15 of the world’s biggest DFIs and DBs from developed countries, key players in the development of a green economy. Drawing on analysis carried out by CPI, representatives of these organizations agreed to collaborate more closely on priority issues, such as driving more private investment, reducing perceived and actual investment risk, changing investment policies to move away from fossil-fuel projects, and creating more transparency on financial flows and best practice.
