Many developing countries are disproportionately facing the task of trying to mitigate and adapt to the impact of climate change, while they are also most vulnerable to the climate change impacts. These governments often lack the policy and regulatory (e.g. for subsidy structures) capacity to support the low carbon development of infrastructure that can help mitigation and adaptation efforts. In addition, low and middle income countries also provide the opportunity and flexibility to enable green growth as many of them are in early stages of their infrastructure development. This solution area focuses on the multidimensional task putting in place the right enabling environment to attract private sector innovation and investment in low carbon infrastructure that promotes green growth for developing countries.
