About the webinar

In order to finance climate change mitigation and green growth, both developed and developing countries will be required to seek out a combination of financial sources, including but not limited to carbon pricing. The financial risks and rewards connected to renewable energy projects in developing countries need to be shared across a larger number of financial institutions, individual investors, and public entities both in developing and developed countries to respond to a reality where a wealth of projects in developing countries contributing to mitigation and green and sustainable growth fails to attract the investments they need. Crowd-funding can be part of a new and emerging set of solution, but they need to get to scale.

The webinar aims at raising awareness among project developers and the private sector on how crowd-investing and crowd-funding platforms can represent a source of finance that catalyzes the implementation climate change mitigation projects, including the CDM, in the Latin American and Caribbean regions. The webinar will be held in English. If you have any questions about this event, please contact the Secretariat of the LEDS LAC Platform: info@ledslac.org.
