Green recovery for cities: What role can the private sector play?
Date & Location
6th October, 2021 - 6th October, 2021
What role can the private sector play in a green transition? How is green financing implemented, and what are the current green financing trends? How does the policy environment incentivise the green transition?
These are a few of the key questions our panellists will explore in this webinar, which focuses on solutions and lessons learnt in the Belgrade Waste-to-Energy Project in Serbia and the Corsan Water Supply, Efficiency, and Resilience Project in Brazil.
The Belgrade Waste-to-Energy Project is cleaning up one of Europe’s largest uncontrolled landfills and constructing a new, sustainable waste-management complex. It is one of the first large-scale, bankable, private sector waste-to-energy projects in emerging markets.
Despite abundant surface freshwater, only 84% of Brazil’s people have access to potable water, and only 50% have access to sewerage. The Corsan Water Supply, Efficiency, and Resilience Project is leveraging private financing to address losses in water distribution and mitigate climate change risks.
