Southeast Asia is highly vulnerable to climate change, as a large proportion of the population and economic activity is concentrated along coastlines. There is a need for organizations to fight the impacts of climate change and transit into more sustainable means of operations. The Centre of Finance for Sustainable Bangkok (CFSB) aims to raise awareness, exchange and manage knowledge and drive the policy agenda and policy actions on finance for sustainability. It will also aim to create an enabling financial environment that supports the implementation of the NDCs and SDGs while unlocking private sector investments into climate change mitigation and adaptation. This session will officially launch the CFSB and further discuss the avenues in which collaboration can be sought toward sustainable green recovery.
Key Takeaways from the session are the following:
- To better understand the function and role of the CFSB in the SEA region
- To identify the challenges towards sustainable transition and accessible finance in the region and opportunities present in the region for sustainable finance and green recovery
- To connect key stakeholders and expand the network in the Centre of Financial for Sustainable
