Climate Aligned Crowd-funding and Crowd-investing in Latin America & Caribbean
The webinar sought to raise awareness among project developers and the private sector on how crowd-investing and crowd-funding platforms can catalyse finance for the implementation of climate change mitigation projects in the Caribbean and Latin America region.
Financing a transition to low carbon and green growth will require both, developed and developing countries, to draw on a set of financial sources. Financial risks and rewards related to renewable energy investments in developing countries needs to be shared across a number of financial institutions, individual investors, and public entities in developing and developed countries in order to attract the investors. Crowd-funding can be part of a new and emerging set of solutions, if it can go to scale.
The webinar featured panelists from LEDS LAC, UNFCCC Secretariat, RCC Panama and RCC St. Georges, as well as from Ecoligo, Bettervest, and UNDP.
