This event will be held physically in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Online participation is also viable.
The Global Green Finance Leadership Program (GFLP) provides a platform for an in-depth dialogue on best practices and inspiring innovations as well as the challenges of scaling-up sustainable finance. It builds on the global momentum created by United Nations Climate Change Conferences and the G20 Leaders’ Summit, both taking place earlier in November 2022. The Program was launched by the Beijing’s Institute of Finance and Sustainability (IFS) in collaboration with a few other China-based and international institutions in May 2018. Participants in the previous editions of the GFLP were representatives from the international financial community, governments and regulatory authorities, academia, the private sector, and the development community more broadly.
IFS will partner with the World Bank Group Inclusive Growth and Sustainable Finance Hub in Malaysia to host the upcoming GFLP 2022 in Malaysia. The theme for this year’s Program is “Scaling-up Sustainable Finance in South-East Asia”. The Program will discuss a wide range of topics, from the challenges of developing the enabling policy environment for developing financial markets for sustainability in developing countries to innovative sustainable financial instruments and the role of the financial sector in helping firms and households build stronger resilience to climate-related and other environmental physical and transition risks.
