🎯Highlighting recent initiatives among African central banks to support the development of sustainable finance.
Description: The side-event aims at highlighting best practices among central banks to foster the development of sustainable practices in the finance sector. Local governments and international financiers often trigger large initiatives which can translate in regulations or technical work conducted by central banks. Those specific players can therefore play a pivotal role to develop different tools and mobilize financial institutions (banks, insurance companies, microfinance institutions). All players can be involved in such initiatives.
Regulators can make use of the regulation as a lever to develop sustainable finance and are best placed to create central contact points for financial institutions to liaise with governments, international organisations and institutional investors.
The side event will build upon the expertise and experience of an African Central bank, the network for Greening the Financial system (NGFS), international organisations (ECF and RMI) to draw conclusions on best practices which can be replicated in the global South.
