Description

Two experts from Climate Bonds Initiative will present practical insights to readiness and will give a virtual demonstration of the roadmap to green bond issuance, addressing some of the pre-conditions to ensure success. 

The webinar will accommodate a facilitated question and answer session, ensuring that participants leave with a stronger understanding of the mechanism and how green bonds can be used to finance climate-aligned infrastructure development and projects.

The webinar will be particularly useful for decision-makers in national and sub-national government and institutions engaged in supporting finance flows to NDC implementation.


This webinar is part of a series covering the project funded by the German Government under the International Climate Initiative (IKI) entitled: Mobilising Investment for NDC Implementation.
