Event Description

In-Person        Zoom registration

This event will be held in a hybrid format, both on Zoom and in person. Registration is required for either attendance option. In-person attendance is restricted to current Princeton University ID holders. Open to the public on Zoom.

Join us for a talk with sustainable finance specialist Dr. Ekaterina (Katya) Gratcheva. Developing countries will be heavily impacted by the climate crisis and a massive influx of capital will be required to help countries mitigate, adapt, and build climate resilience. To address this challenge, the Climate Investment Funds launched in 2008, aims to accelerate and lower the cost of capital mobilization for emerging markets, and also to support a just transition that benefits a broad range of stakeholders.
