Processes for Developing Bankable Project Pipelines 

Processes for Developing Bankable Project Pipelines


Develop the analytic process for scaling up the development of pipelines of bankable projects that meet the requirements of investors (public and private).


The approach of this systematic analytic process builds on global best practices and integrates them into a national context and bankable investment vehicles through a defined process:

1) Develop a sector-specific Global Ecosystem Assessment of best practices of business models, potential partners, and scaling approaches that meet investor requirements

Access Example: Global Ecosystem Assessment for Solid Waste



2) Develop National Scans to adapt the approaches set forth in the Global Sector Ecosystem Assessments, refining the design of business models, selection of partners, and scaling approaches that meet investor requirements

Access Example: Kenya National Scan for Solid Waste

Access the Guide to Create a National Scan



3) Develop Bankable Investment Vehicles, using aggregation and developing local ecosystems

Access Example: A Bankable Investment Vehicle



Supported by the Covenant of Mayors in Sub-Saharan Africa, with support from GIZ and the European Union.

Overview: The Analytic Process for Developing Bankable Investment Vehicles



The Process: (1) Global Ecosystem Assessments, (2) National Scans,  3) Investment Vehicles



Why Global Sector Ecosystem Assessments? Global best practices provide the optimal foundational basis for developing bankable investments



Why National Scans? Bankability is achieved through adapting to national context of issues and solutions



Unlocking Finance through Bankable Investment Vehicles: Develop Scaling Approaches that Meet  Investment Requirements



Example of Scaling through Pooled Fund of Several Projects



Long-Term Imperative: Build National Ecosystems of  experts, dynamic peer-exchanges, with an on-line platform



Let's Deliver Results Together! 

Actionable effective collaboration is urgently required to design and implement finance solutions to achieve the SDGs and Climate Goals!
