The Private Sector Set Asides (PSSAs) allocate concessional financing on a competitive basis to projects that engage the private sector in sustainable forestry (FIP), climate resilience (PPCR), and energy access through renewable energy in low income countries (SREP). They are designed to spur innovation and flexible delivery of financing.
The set-asides serve a complementary role to country investment plans, which generally favor public funds in these sectors, with their aim to provide the risk-appropriate capital needed to drive private sector investments in some of the world’s most challenging markets.
PSSA allocations of $106 million are supporting 13 projects, including climate-smart hydropower in Tajikistan and water-efficient housing in Jamaica.
