Sanitation and Water for All (SWA)

Climate finance is a complex domain that the WASH sector has yet to tap into. Development banks, aid agencies and the private sector are the main sources of what is generally considered climate finance, but multilateral institutions such as the Green Climate Fund also fund climate activities. National and bilateral climate finance initiatives are emerging sources of funding, and the growth of green bonds signals an increasing appetite for municipal and private investment in debt capital markets for climate change.

This webinar will support SWA partners in navigating the climate financing landscape. It will outline trends, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different sources, and provide examples from countries that have developed or are developing WASH climate financing proposals.
