Alternate Title: U.S. International Development Finance Corporation Climate Action Plan Under Executive Order 14008

From the Introduction: "Executive Order (E.O.) 14008, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, requires that each federal agency develop a draft Climate Action Plan (Plan) that responds to the climate crisis. The United States' vision for climate action is fundamentally driven by the extraordinary opportunity it presents for economic revitalization and equity--through job creation, healthier communities, the dismantling of gender inequities and driving forward inclusive growth. DFC's [U.S. International Development Finance Corporation's] leadership recognizes the critical role it must play to equitably address climate change and ensure a just transition through its approach to climate finance. Building a sizeable and impactful portfolio of climate financing is key to demonstrating and furthering DFC's commitment to address climate change head on. Achieving this goal will require DFC to refine its process and adopt a climate lens through which it will view all its financing activities (see box below). Revisiting, improving upon, and diversifying DFC's project sourcing approaches is critical to ensuring that its climate portfolio is innovative and responsive to the dynamic landscape of climate finance. The ability for DFC to integrate climate change adaptation and climate resilience across its portfolio is a key part of the work that will make DFC a more resilient agency."
