With this booklet, we would like to share examples of initiatives and investments of EDFI members in climate finance varying from adaptation, such as wind and solar energy projects, to mitigation, such as responsible forestry management and sustainable agriculture. With these investments, EDFI members hope to build the road towards a more sustainable world. We will only succeed if we bring together all the partners in the development finance community, financiers, business, governments and NGOs, to collaborate and offer solutions that meet the needs of the private sector and the developing countries where we invest.

European Development Finance Institutions (EDFI) and private sector combat climate change in the developing worldClimate change is the most far-reaching challenge the world faces in coming decades. Estimates of the costs of mitigating climate change and adapting to it vary, but they all indicate massive need of resources. The International Energy Agency (IEA) has calculated the investments needed to keep average global temperature increase below 2° C to amount to annual USD 590 billion for OECD countries and USD 769 billion for non-OECD countries by 2035. The biggest portion of the new money should go to transport, building and energy sectors. In addition, a marked change in the policy environment should take place to enable and encourage clean investments.published on2013The members of the association of European Developement Finance Institutions, EDFI, have joibtly commisioned an evaluation of the effectiveness of EDFI members' support for SME development through Financial institutions in Africa.published on2014
