This report is an attempt at ‘demystifying private finance’ to climate change negotiators. It explains the different types of private finance, and describes the variety of sources, intermediaries, legal considerations and investment objectives that are to be found in the private finance landscape. The second part of this report analyses the types of private finance that are particularly relevant to a sample of mitigation and adaptation activities, explains why different project types require different forms of ‘private finance’ to succeed, and explains how the specific characteristics of the project type affect the forms of public intervention that are needed to attract private sector finance.
