The Global Innovation Lab for Climate Finance just launched a new Call for Ideas. We are looking for powerful, actionable ideas and initiatives that can scale up finance for a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy.

Please note that a key focus of the Global Lab this year is Sustainable Urbanization. We are seeking innovative ideas to catalyze private investment into key sectors – including transportation, green buildings, waste management, energy efficiency and renewable energy – in order to finance the transition to climate-smart urban infrastructure in developing and emerging economies.

Selected ideas will receive technical guidance from high-level investors and experts as well as analytical, outreach, and communications support. Previous winners have raised nearly USD 600 million through the Lab network for renewable energy, energy efficiency, and climate resilience projects. For more information see here.

We would very much encourage you to consider this opportunity, and appreciate your help in sharing the call-for-ideas broadly within your organizations and professional networks, to ensure a promising set of new Lab instruments.
