Environmental Lending in EU Eastern Partnership Countries

image of Environmental Lending in EU Eastern Partnership Countries

This report presents an overview of existing environmental credit lines in the EU’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine), which are mostly supported by International Finance Institutions and donors and disbursed by local commercial banks. Lessons learned from this type of credit-line implementation provide useful insights for spurring the banking sector into financing green investments.



Policy and market analysis

A market overview will be undertaken in the relevant country, drawing upon the frameworks presented in recent OECD papers “Policy guidance for investment in clean energy infrastructure” and “Towards a green investment policy framework: The case of low-carbon, climate-resilient infrastructure”. The analysis framework will be tailored to the market and sector identified for the credit line case studies once selected. The aim will be to identify the specific market, regulatory and investment challenges associated with scaling up environmental lending in the given sector, and to explore how governments might support this process going forward.
