Regional hubs

SDIP regional hubs bring together a wide range of local institutions and representative offices of SDIP members to tackle financing challenges at the local level.

Objectives

  • Broaden the sources of available financing for projects in the region

Activities

  • Validate early stage project pipelines to establish commercial viability
  • Identify investment mechanisms that have proven effective in other regions and scale and replicate at the local level
  • Map and analyze the landscape of regional PPFs and project support capital
  • Host country-level capacity bridging workshops, including support for NDC/SDG investment plans
  • Geographic presence
