This webinar will provide a brief overview of the topic of green bonds, barriers for international debt capital markets to invest in a consistent manner into emerging markets, and how aggregation of project assets and refinancing through proceeds of green bonds can accelerate NDC implementation. We will consider structures that can be designed for replication across countries. This will be accompanied by three inspiring examples of how such investment structures can work in practice.
The points to be discussed in this webinar will include matters such as design challenges of green bonds to meet the transparency requirements of the Paris Agreement and ensure environmental integrity associated with green investment globally, how limitations in global green finance due to fragmentation of definitions can be overcome and how a standardized climate-themed bond definition and structure could help to quickly scale-up NDC implementation across regions and countries.
This webinar is organized jointly by UNDP through its NDC Support Programme, the Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) and Climate Mundial.
