The Climake Newsletter #25: The State of Climate Finance in India 2023
The Climake Newsletter offers quick digests and insights around what is happening in climate finance. While Climake’s current focus of work is largely India-centric, we will capture a global perspective of climate finance in this newsletter.
We have been quiet for a while, with the usual interesting developments that we hope to be able to share in due course. But we are back to share and spread the word on all things useful and insightful around climate finance.
And we start with our annual stock-taking of the growth and trends in climate finance for India.
Our third Annual ‘The State of Climate Finance in India 2023’, published in partnership with Unitus Capital, is out now.
The report reviews progress in India’s climate action goals, and reviews how climate finance is keeping pace. Read on to see details about:
India's key climate action developments in 2022;
Trends in India’s climate investments from 2022;
A deep dive into major segments of climate action and stock-take of their current progress and future opportunity;
Our thoughts on how climate investments (and investors) will evolve as climate action picks up over the next few years.
Readers of our previous report - “The State of Climate Finance in India 2022” - will recall our efforts to estimates total gap in climate finance until 2030. This year, we further delve into potential sources of this capital, and how equity and other financial instruments will shape up.
We set out to make a data-driven, actionable report that would have value to everyone in the climate finance ecosystem, whether you are looking at:
booming and emerging climate sectors in equity financing;
the investment India needs according to its current climate priorities';
the expected drivers of climate impact in the most active segments of solar, EVs, agri, waste management and circularity;
Or understanding what different capital structures will look like.
We hope the report is informative and helps you in whatever work you do in pushing the climate action agenda further. Do reach out to us if you would like to connect and engage further in enabling climate finance in India and the region.
Finally, a heads up: we are planning a dialogue on the ideas and trends outlined in the report in partnership with Unitus Capital sometime in May 2023. We will send out the invites as soon as the details are confirmed.
As always, send all feedback, compliments and brickbats our way. And of course, we do appreciate you spreading the word about this newsletter.
We’re growing to build something collaborative with you and the more the merrier!
