Overview of climate mainstreaming approach and goals:

At the IsDB, mainstreaming climate change and building resilience is central to the business model of the Bank, which is expected to enable the Bank to enhance the overall design and sustainability of its interventions in member countries. We pursue mainstreaming climate change as a significant opportunity to connect the Bank’s investments with the sustainability challenges the world faces. Mainstreaming climate change at IsDB is built on four work streams namely: mainstreaming in the Bank’s operations, support MCs NDC realization, capacity building and knowledge generation in MCs and financing and leveraging resources for climate action. These work streams are carried out through various approaches including reflecting climate objectives in all strategic documents and policies of the Bank including Member Countries’ Partnership Strategies (MCPS), operating guidelines, sector-focused policies, and strategies such as agriculture, transport, energy, women, and youth empowerment. Ina addition, the Bank supports climate action in member countries through the continuous development of tools and guidance documents, tailored financial products and modalities, knowledge products and capacity development & training programs to further strengthening sustainable imperatives in member countries. Furthermore, as nations make effort to build back better post COVID-19, the Bank is increasing its mainstreaming effort with a focus on green and resilient recovery in its offerings to member countries.
