"Learn why blended finance solutions are necessary to safeguard the global commons."

Unprecedented transformation is required for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and safeguarding the global commons. Such transformation will be significantly unlocked by blended finance, defined as "the strategic use of development finance and philanthropic funds to mobilize private capital flows to emerging and frontier markets".

With the support of its donors, The Global Environmental Facility (GEF) is expanding its focus on the use of blended finance and identifying additional strategies to engage the private sector as a full partner in reversing environmental degradation, protecting natural resources, and promoting sustainable development. Learn more about the GEF’s blended finance approach through this GEF publication.
