The World Federation of Development Financing Institution’s Knowledge Hub (WFDFI_KH) is an online portal that clusters knowledge and resources on development financing across all development intervention areas. It is a free-for all web space where development financing practitioners and enthusiasts could access existing and compelling knowledge products from a wide range of institutions, with diverse structure and procedures, engaged in supporting and promoting development finance and its crosscutting issues in advancing policies, processes, programs, projects and practices for the benefits of their beneficiaries and stakeholders. The two-fold purposes of the WFDFI_KH are shaping and advancing policy and advocacy positions that impact the development of the banking and finance community worldwide and improve DFI capacity, as well as facilitating knowledge management and sharing.

This report aims to give an overview of Korea’s energy efficiency policy experience for the benefit of policy makers and industry practitioners aiming to promote and scale up energy efficiency improvements in the industry sector, particularly in manufacturing. The report also aims to provide industry practitioners with lessons drawn from practices implemented by industry subsectors and groups of energy-intensive firms in Korea.
This report presents two case studies in which coastal vulnerability modeling was used to quantify the role those coastal ecosystems play in reducing risk to coastal communities now and with future sea-level rise. These analyses were used to inform post-disaster reconstruction and coastal resilience building efforts as well as climate change adaptation strategies.
Little is known about mining taxation in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), although it is both particularly complex and has large effects on incentives for investments in mining activities. This paper reviews the types and consequences of mining taxes that are applied in the region and their implications for investment. Most countries assess royalties based on the value of production, which are consistent with royalties applied globally. However, miners confront additional taxes such that tax regimes, in the aggregate, inefficiently discourage investment, including income taxes, non-refundable sales taxes on capital purchases, capital taxes, gross receipt taxes, and real estate transfer taxes. Several reforms emerge from the analysis. The most important is for LAC countries to consider profit-based regimes--similar to Chile, Mexico, and Peru--supplemented by a minimum royalty based on the value of production. Company tax reforms should also be considered with the aim to tax mining similarly to other sectors of the economy to improve the allocation of capital.

En este documento se propone un conjunto de indicadores para evaluar la seguridad energética de Belice, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua y Panamá. A partir del diagnóstico, centrado en los problemas energéticos de cada país, se presentaron indicadores que permitieran obtener un índice de seguridad energética (ISE). Estos indicadores se sometieron al criterio de expertos para su validación, con ayuda de especialistas del sector energético de los países de Centroamérica. Se utilizó el método Delphi en el procesamiento de los resultados y todos los indicadores fueron aprobados. Con el fin de compactar el número de indicadores, perder la menor cantidad de información y obtener una solución interpretable, se realizó un análisis de componentes principales con el software SPSS. Con las variables resultantes, se determinó el ISE de cada país. La tendencia del comportamiento del ISE en cada país se examinó a partir de acontecimientos nacionales e internacionales que pudieron repercutir en el comportamiento de los indicadores.
This report by the European Investment Bank’s Innovation and Digital Finance Advisory Division examines the inefficiencies that lead to leakages across the plastics value chain — built up over many decades of exponential growth in both the types and volume of plastics produced — and the potential for directing investment towards solutions to the problem.

National development finance institutions (NDFIs) can play a vital role in promoting climate
financing and thus achieving Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) due to their
knowledge of local markets, their close connections to domestic public and private
stakeholders and their ability for local currency financing. However, currently NDFIs are not
involved as intensively in this field as they could be.
We propose a new model of a small open economy with efficient energy use to investigate the inflationary dynamics along
the green transition. The model incorporates the production of
green energy that substitutes exogenous brown energy sources
in energy production. Production is characterized by low substitutability between resource and traditional inputs that firms
can alter through directed input-saving technical change.
