Subject: Role of multilateral climate funds in mobilising private finance

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of ODI, I wanted to share the findings from our recent research on the role of multilateral climate funds (MCF) in mobilising private finance: a review of the CTF, GEF, SREP, GEEREF and PPCR.

We have also published the underlying data for the report which includes 93 private finance interventions (PFIs) representing $30 billion in MCF, public and private investment. Across this data set we find that every $1.00 of public finance is aiming to mobilise on average $0.80 of private finance. In addition, we can begin to identify patterns in those PFIs that target high levels of private investment.
Any feedback you have on these outputs would be very valuable.
Please let us know if you have any comments or questions.

Best,
Shelagh
