MIGA at COP28
The UN Conference on Climate Change COP28 is taking place November 30 - December 12, 2023 in Dubai, UAE.
Private sector involvement in climate action is key to closing the climate finance gap, which by some estimates ranges in trillions of dollars. MIGA's ability to mobilize private capital is essential for unlocking private sector potential for addressing climate finance needs in developing countries.
MIGA has made climate change a priority area of its strategy, along with low-income countries and fragile and conflict-affected situations, and has sought to implement the commitments made in the World Bank Group Climate Change Action Plan.

MIGA's Climate Work
In 2023, MIGA is supporting Djibouti's transition to clean energy by guaranteeing its first independent power project.
MIGA was instrumental in encouraging private sector participation in addressing DRC’s power deficits in an environmentally and financially sustainable manner.
MIGA’s guarantees will support the provision of electricity and logistical services to power existing and future cell phone towers in Liberia and Sierra Leone.
A core part of MIGA’s priorities is to draw attention to the challenges women working in the energy sector face and facilitating more equitable access to energy for all.
