Key takeaways

The scale of climate bond issuance in Latin America - $45 billion in absolute terms from 11 countries - is small for the region relative to the overall size of the global climate bond market, which now stands at over $1 trillion.

Individual countries have divergent climate bond policies and frameworks, causing market fragmentation and creating obstacles to international investor participation in climate bond issuances.

Coordination of policy frameworks and common use proceeds at a regional level is key to accelerating green bond issuance and progress towards decarbonisation in Latin America.
