Description

Hosted by ADB’s Southeast Asia Regional Department’s (SERD) Green Finance Hub (GFH) the ASEAN Catalytic Green Finance Facility (ACGF), and the Southeast Asia Development Solutions (SEADS), this webinar seeks to enhance knowledge of climate finance and support the developing member countries of the ADB, and in particular the Southeast Asia region, in expanding climate change action. Gaps in climate finance flows, from the sources (e.g., public, private) to the financing instruments employed (e.g., loans, grants) and the uses of funds (e.g., adaptation, mitigation, sectors)- and related challenges and opportunities will be discussed. The webinar is intended for both sources and recipients of climate finance and their roles in accelerating the delivery of climate change solutions. The discussion will be anchored on findings from two recent publications - ADB’s Climate Finance Landscape of Asia and the Pacific (2023) and the Climate Policy Initiative’s Global Landscape of Climate Finance (2023).
