Rationale
Many Asia Pacific countries are vulnerable to climate risk due to the ill effects of climate change that negatively impact on their economies. The financial sector plays a vital role in addressing these vulnerabilities by influencing both the public and private sectors to invest in green and climate-resilient projects that support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to align their economies towards the sustainable development pathway. Important aspects of sustainable finance and development are green investments propelled by the banking sector where lending decisions are based on environmental screening and risk assessment to meet sustainability standards.

Course Objectives
