On Thursday 13 July 2017, a webinar was held on ‘Climate aligned Crowd-funding and Crowd-investing in Latin America and Caribbean’ organized by RCC Panama, RCC St. Georges and LEDsLAC.

The webinar aimed to raise awareness among project developers and the private sector on how crowd-investing and crowd-funding platforms can represent a source of finance that catalyses the implementation of climate change mitigation projects in the Caribbean and Latin America region.

To finance climate change mitigation and green growth, both developed and developing countries will be required to seek out a combination of financial sources. It is said that the financial risks and rewards connected to renewable energy project in developing countries need to be shared across a larger number of financial institutions, individual investors, and public entities both in developing and developed countries to respond to a reality where a wealth of projects in developing countries contributing to mitigation and green and sustainable growth fails to attract the investments they need. Crowd-funding can be part of a new and emerging set of solution, but they need to get to scale.
