PDCI is a global platform to facilitate, support and encourage private investment in climate change adaptation measures, energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. The group developed three areas of intervention: public incentive schemes; regulatory frameworks and effective financial mechanisms.

She played a facilitative role in connecting decision-makers from the public sector with representatives from the financial sector, industry, consulting bodies and academia and a review role of the Dialogue outcomes framework and objectives. She is was participant and had a regular input role in international PDCI meetings on climate finance, policy, green procurement and entrepreneur approaches and the green economy.
