Scaling up cross-border private financial flows for climate action

Explore how to overcome the barriers to the lack of cross-border climate investment.

Research event, Panel
29 November 2022 — 1:00PM TO 2:00PM

Around 90 per cent of private climate finance stays within national borders. Most finance resides in developed economies while most renewable energy investment opportunities are in developing markets which are also the most vulnerable to climate impacts and have the least capacity to attract international finance.

The lack of cross-border climate investment happens for several reasons including a lack of national policy support, differences in regulatory standards, exchange rate uncertainty, political and governance risks and market information failures.

What can be done to overcome these barriers? Who are the main actors? What is the role of central banks and financial regulators? Learn more from Chatham House’s research and expert panellists at our webinar on 29 November 2022.

This event is part of The Waddesdon Club Webinar Series. The Waddesdon Club is a Chatham House initiative to encourage climate leadership in finance and economic policymaking. Since 2016, it has proved a highly successful forum for convening senior policymakers and leading climate scientists with future leaders in finance ministries, central banks and other public sector economic and financial organizations from around the world. This initiative is supported by Ikea Foundation, KR Foundation and the Rothschild Foundation.
