Energy efficiency in the agricultural sector
06/28/2018 Since 3 years
The nexus between agriculture and energy is continually being supported in investment programs through international financial institutions. Given that energy efficiency projects may have a high risk, some of these institutions have developed mechanisms to mitigate it in order to make these projects easier to develop. In the case of the IDB, it counts with a Financial Innovation Laboratory in which instruments for climate transformation are identified, developed and implemented with the objective of attracting private investment for climate change mitigation and adaptation actions in developing countries. In Mexico, the IDB is working jointly with FIRA on the development of tools for energy efficiency projects.
