In this interview from the December, 2011 U.N. Climate Change talks in Durban, South Africa, OPIC President and CEO Elizabeth Littlefield outlines OPIC’s progress since it identified renewable resources as the agency’s number one sector priority a year ago.

She also explains how partnerships between the public and private sectors can be effective in solving the world’s biggest environmental challenges.

“Certainly the kind of commitment that we need to have in order to solve the problems that face the planet right now are going to require partnership between the public and the private sector, and a lot of money that is not going to come from government budgets, given today’s fiscal crises around the world.”

“But there are very important ways that the public sector can catalyze private sector investment.”

“I’m very optimistic.”
