Sustainable Finance Forum: Financing the SDGs in Southeast Asia
Join us at this half-day summit that will bring together thought leaders and leading sustainable finance experts from the public, and private sectors and intergovernmental organisations to discuss cross-cutting and pressing issues on Sustainable Finance in the region. The webinar series on Sustainable Finance Training Roadmap for Banks will be launched at this event.
While we grapple with the confluence of two pressing global health threats — Covid-19 and the evolving climate crisis — the deadline to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals is fast approaching. Asia and the Pacific regions are at risk of not achieving any of the 17 SDGs by 2030. Enhancing sustainable financing strategies and investments and transforming the financial system at regional and country levels is critical to direct the much-needed capital for sustainable development.
Banks play a pivotal role in creating a sustainable financial system. To encourage the flow of resources towards more inclusive and sustainable activities, while supporting low carbon climate-resilient development, the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP), UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI), World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP) are supporting banks in Southeast Asia and the greater Asia Pacific Region through knowledge sharing and capacity building workshops.
Please join us at the Sustainable Finance Forum: Financing the SDGs in Southeast Asia, 14 October 2020 9:00 am to 12:00 nn (GMT+7). The Forum is aimed at executives and representatives of banks, intergovernmental organizations, governments and financial institutions committed to the success of sustainable finance in Southeast Asia.
The webinar series “Sustainable Finance Training Roadmap for Banks” will be launched at this event and includes (9) webinars that will start on 20 October and every Tuesday thereafter.
