Data-to-Deal boosted by three more Working Papers.

We’re pleased to announce the publication of three new Working Papers supporting the growing Data-to-Deal (D2D) approach. D2D is gaining traction as an innovative approach to secure finance and investment for clean energy projects. Developed by over 80 global experts, D2D aims to overcome the financial mobilisation challenges faced by many countries in the Global South. By leveraging open data, D2D creates fact-based energy scenarios that inform policymaking and drive the transition towards sustainable, low-carbon economies.

D2D has already secured billions of dollars by developing national visions that guide the creation of customised climate finance strategies. Initially documented in Costa Rica, D2D has now been elaborated through case studies in Uruguay, Chile, and the Dominican Republic.

The three new case studies reveal both common themes and unique challenges each country faces in implementing the D2D approach.

  • :flag-do: Dominican Republic: Highlights the energy sector’s critical role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, emphasizing sector-specific strategies within the broader national Long-Term Strategy. Read the paper here.
  • :flag-uy: Uruguay: Focuses on achieving carbon dioxide neutrality by 2050 while safeguarding its crucial agricultural sector, demonstrating a tailored approach to balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability. Read the paper here.
  • :flag-cl: Chile: Stands out for its legislative progress, having enacted a Climate Change Framework Law that codifies its climate commitments and strategies into law, showcasing the power of legal instruments in solidifying climate action. Read the paper here.
