Objective of the Project

This UNEP/GEF targeted research project aims to catalyse new thinking in the risk management area, examining existing instruments and approaches and suggesting potential modalities for new instruments that could be developed in partnership with private and public sector financial institutions. The project is being implemented in cooperation with the private sector and other GEF Implementing Agencies- the World Bank, UNDP.

The ultimate goal of the effort is to bring about a faster and more systematic deployment of RE by supporting and positively influencing the development of markets for RE risk management instruments/ approaches.
