Study Tour Program on Climate Finance: Pathways and Opportunities for Financial Institutions
Countries are working together and moving quickly to implement their nationally determined contributions (NDCs) of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions to help achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and limit global warning to 1.5°C as well as the global goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.
Sectors such as power, construction, and transport present significant opportunities to transition to low carbon systems and technologies. Financial institutions (FIs) play a critical role in transitioning the economy to low carbon and drive investments towards more climate resilient development.
At the end of this study tour program, the participants would have a deeper knowledge and understanding of transition finance, transition finance pathways in the energy and real estate sectors, and financial institution transition initiatives.
Officers and staff of development banks and other financial institutions involved in relationship management, risk management, environmental management, program/product development, compliance, and credit review/appraisal.
Delivery of the program would be through a mix of formal lectures and design thinking approaches, where issues and cases will be studied through brainstorming and group analysis. It will be complemented by study visits at development banks and selected energy and real estate development institutions that showcase transition finance programs and initiatives.
