This report by REPP provides an analysis of how the programme’s investments are aligned with the climate, energy and development priorities of the countries where it operates.

The report is based on extensive desk-based research and maps REPP’s investments to date against country needs and priorities as embodied in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement, national climate policies, energy sector policies, strategies and action plans, and long-term development agendas. It includes an overview of REPP’s overall alignment with national priorities, as well as an in-depth look at how the programme is supporting the implementation of those policies on a country-by-country basis.

The aim of the report is to deepen REPP’s understanding of how it is supporting the implementation of countries’ priorities, as well as to identify ways to improve the ex-ante assessment of potential future investments derived from the findings. It is also hoped the research presented in the report will inspire – and support – other climate and impact investors and fund managers in taking a proactive approach towards ensuring their operations align with national policy agendas.
