On 8 and 9 November, 60 attendees from 30 countries took part in an AFI virtual training event: Practical Considerations for Inclusive Green Finance Implementation, Leveraging Digital Financial Services in the Africa Region.
The session explored how Inclusive Green Finance (IGF) can advance financial inclusion while building resilience to climate risks and promoting a just transition to a green economy.
“The course was tailored for AFI members from Sub-Saharan Africa, and covered the practical implementation of IGF policies,” explained Johanna Nyman, AFI’s Head of Inclusive Green Finance. “Sub-Saharan Africa is very vulnerable to climate impacts, and IGF can play an important role in building resilience amongst individuals and SMEs. The high attendance reflects our members’ interest in this area, and we’re looking forward to working with more members on IGF in-country implementation projects.”
