Context

Countries of the Western Balkans have only marginally benefitted from climate finance to date in spite of the challenges and risks associated with climate change and environmental pollution. The region’s growth is showing high volatility to weather-related shocks. Since 1990, 100 disasters have affected more than 3.8 million people in the region and caused more than US$ 3.5 billion in direct damages. Local air pollution is a major concern mainly due to the large dependence on coal and reliance to inefficient heating systems. While financial resources are available in the region for climate-related investments, multiple challenges prevail and prevent the deployment of green technologies at scale.  GGGI partners with international and local actors to support the deployment of green investments in a complementary manner, focusing on integrated value-chain interventions and developing incentive schemes for private sector investments and bankable solutions.
