Inclusive Green Finance: A Survey of the Policy Landscape (Second Edition)

Climate change imposes a high cost on low-income and vulnerable populations in developing and emerging economies. Research shows that financial inclusion is one of the best ways to build individual and collective resilience to the effects of climate change.

Inclusive green finance (IGF) is a rapidly evolving policy area, and AFI member institutions are beginning to devise and implement policies, regulations and national strategies to mitigate or build resilience to the sweeping environmental, health, social and economic effects of climate change.

This second edition of AFI’s Inclusive Green Finance Policy Landscape Survey reveals new and emerging policy practices that are guiding the transition to more inclusive and resilient low-carbon economies. It also contributes to the global effort to implement the Paris Agreement and achieve climate-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Inclusive Green Finance workstream is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI), supported by the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), based on a decision by the German Bundestag.
