Priority Sectors

As part of the World Bank Group’s Climate Change Action Plan for 2021-2025, IFC is focusing its efforts on five key systems responsible for over 90% of global greenhouse gas emissions: energy; agriculture, food, water and land; cities; transport; and manufacturing. These systems are the backbone of our economies, so making them more sustainable, resilient and inclusive is critical. To marshal the capital needed for decarbonizing these sectors, IFC is also developing innovative green finance solutions that will increase the size of the market.
