Financing the Green Transition

28 May 2024, 11:00 am to 12:00 pm

Does the global financial architecture need fundamental reform in order to finance the green transition, as many have argued? We will look at this through an equitable lens, focusing on Africa. African nations must be at the centre of reforms and global regulations and agreements cannot legitimately be shaped absent their input.

In particular, there are calls for lower-income countries to have sufficient access to concessional finance through the World Bank’s IDA and reform of unsustainable debt, which is stopping many developing countries from investing in climate and conservation measures. We will host a panel of leading financial sector lawyers to discuss what can be done about it, including innovative lawyering where regulatory architecture hasn’t kept up with the necessary pace of change.
