Foreword

In the European Union’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine – credit lines supported by International Finance Institutions (IFIs) are the main source of long-term funding for green investments, particularly in energy and resource efficiency. It is now 10 years since the design work began on the first IFI credit lines in the region. Learning from the experience with the implementation of such credit lines provides useful insight into the main challenges to increasing the capacity of the EaP banking sector to finance green investment projects.
