GEF Innovations in Blended Finance: A Summary

Transforming the world's energy systems, cities, and land-use systems to become low-carbon and resilient will require a large-scale change in global finance flows. The magnitude of financing is in the order of trillions of dollars per year, of which a large amount comes from the private sector. It is therefore critical that scarce public resources are deployed in a way that catalyzes the required redirection of finance. Blended finance aims to achieve exactly that, and therefore has attracted significant interest in recent years.

GEF Integrated Approach Pilot: Taking Deforestation out of Commodity Supply Chains

Today, soy, beef and palm oil yield about $92 billion a year to producers, many of whom are small-scale rural farmers. These commodities thus become important in many local and national economies. Therefore, sustainability within commodities will only be achieved by linking long-term national sustainable development plans with day-to-day value chain management.
