Mercados emergentes atraen una cifra récord de US$126 mil millones de inversiones en energía limpia

Con el cambio climático como una preocupación creciente, las tecnologías de energía limpia son una alternativa atractiva.  Más aún, el desarrollo de estas nuevas tecnologías bajas en carbono, que incluyen biomasa, energía geotérmica, hidroeléctrica, solar y eólica, puede ayudar a reducir la pobreza en los países en desarrollo y a mejorar su seguridad energética.

Private sector finance for the communities most impacted by climate change


To date, many of the important discussions about climate change have focused on national level challenges - strengthening national government departments, building climate smart infrastructure, setting national GHG emissions targets - which are critical given the magnitude of the climate challenge. But here at the MIF we view climate change from the lens of our clients: small firms and farms, and poor and low income families. Our challenge is to translate global and national conversations to the individual communities by providing training and finance for clean and efficient energy, making communities more resilient and identifying new business opportunities.

Notes from Rio+20: The Green Economy

On Sunday, I headed to the Forte de Copacabana for an event hosted by the World Resources Institute (WRI) about the “green economy.”  I heard their temporary installations were grand, but somehow all I saw was the inside of a windowless makeshift conference room. Thankfully, the event was very interesting. It was split into three sessions: the value of sustainability and unlocking next practices, green jobs and investments, and advances in the greenhouse gas protocols for businesses. I thought the first panel was the most relevant to the MIF’s work. Here are some things that stuck with me and that I thought I would share.

Rio+20: Dispatch from the ground


Having been in the ground now for two days at the 
Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the most interesting things I have heard so far in the sessions I have attended. I have been at the Corporate Sustainability Forum since Saturday. The forum, attended by nearly 2,500 people, is an event to discuss concrete private sector solutions to energy poverty and climate change.
