Ever wondered about the pivotal role development banks play in steering the shift towards climate-friendly and resilient buildings?

On 6 March 2024, in the eve of the Buildings and Climate Global Forum, the Programme for Energy Efficency in Buildings (PEEB) is teaming up with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) to co-organize a high-level roundtable featuring over 30 leaders from 15 Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) and National Development Banks (NDBs) alongside key partners such as the International Energy Agency.

This session organized in Paris at Agence Française de Développement's headquarters will delve into the current state of financial support for decarbonized and resilient buildings and aims to address challenges and opportunities, paving the way for amplified international cooperation in the realm of green buildings.

Following a session opening by Manelle Ait Sahlia AFD’s Deputy Head of Energy Unit, Ommid Saberi (IFC Global lead for Green and Resilient Buildings) will lead a deep dive, spotlighting development banks' ongoing initiatives in resilient and low-carbon buildings.

Next on the agenda, the International Development Finance Club (IDFC) Secretary-General Nicolas Picchiotino will moderate a discussion on pivotal strategies: from attracting private capital and leveraging grants to blended finance. This session is a strategic roadmap for development banks to spearhead the transition towards low-carbon buildings.

PEEB Manager and energy-efficiency specialist, José Lopez will conclude the discussion on accessing funding facilities and leveraging solutions in view of the Forum (7-8 March). 

The outcomes of the session will be shared at the session on development banks at the Buildings and Climate Global Forum on 7 March. Learn more about this and other events organised by PEEB at the Forum.
