In a debt swap the original value of a loan is discounted and sold to another creditor (person who provides credit) who takes on the debt in exchange for various commitments from the debtor (the person taking the line of credit). In a debt-for-climate swap, an NGO would act as a donor, purchasing debt from commercial banks at its face value. The debt would then be transferred to the debtor country in exchange for a specific commitment to environmental or conservation goals, performed through a national environmental fund. Basically, NGOs would subsidize the cost of debts for countries to pursue climate action. THS debt-for-climate swaps
