Financing inclusive low-carbon resilient development: The role of national financial institutions in Ethiopia’s Climate Resilient Green Economy
Supporting inclusive investment in Ethiopia’s transition to a Climate Resilient Green Economy (CR GE) is a key policy priority for the government of Ethiopia.
To achieve this, policymakers will need to address financial and market development needs of prospective investors,including those of rural households, small and medium enterprises and start-up private sector enterprises.
In this paper, we focus on the role of national development finance institutions in mobilising and delivering finance for inclusive investment in CR GE. Based on a case study of the development Bank of Ethiopia, we find that national development finance institutions have the potential to deliver scaled-up and long-term finance to those who need it most.
