Joined MDB Methodological Principles for Assessment of Paris Agreement Alignment of New Operations

Direct Investment Lending Operations

Key points

These notes set out joint MDB methodological principles for assessment of Paris Agreement alignment, providing a common technical approach for a range of financial instruments and financing types MDBs may use, addressing both BB1 and BB2 within each. Joint MDB methodological principles have been prepared for:

  1. Direct investment lending operations,
  2. Policy-based lending operations
  3. Intermediated financing
  4. General corporate purpose finance.

Universally aligned and universally non-aligned lists of activities were also prepared and included in a separate section. These joint MDB methodological principles will be used by the MDBs to inform and facilitate the Paris Alignment assessments of their new financing operations
