Rewards Results on Nature and Climate

To help countries reach the scale of financing they need to meet their nature and climate commitments, the IDB launched the IDB CLIMA Pilot Program. IDB CLIMA focuses on development effectiveness and offers results-based rewards to borrowers through interventions designed to leverage multilateral lending to access green and thematic debt markets and deliver impact, thus aligning financial incentives with climate and nature-positive action.
