The side event on EU Blending was held during the COP21. The event was successfully organised by the EU and gathered representatives from the EC, major European financial institutions (EIB, AFD, KfW and DEG) and representatives from partner countries.

The side event presented the status of the ongoing EU initiatives and provided a framework for discussing several case studies in the panel. The session provided a brief overview and some examples on the EU working with public sector and private investors in external cooperation towards the objectives of Europe 2020 strategy and discuss how private sector resources and engagement can be further catalysed for climate change financing in partner countries.
