  • Day 3, Enabling conditions for blended finance and regional opportunities will examine the opportunity for policymakers and regulators to afford private actors the optimum environment within which to lead investible climate-smart projects; and invite financial institutions to show-case investment and Technical Assistance prospects, gaps and challenges in the region.
