About this event

The seminar will discuss recent International Monetary Fund’s studies on climate finance issues. Emerging market and developing economies will need significant climate financing in coming years to reduce their carbon emissions and adapt to the physical effects of climate change but scaling up climate finance in a timely manner faces significant challenges.

The seminar will discuss challenges and opportunities relating to climate finance in emerging markets and developing economies. As China has been at the global forefront of developing green finance, the seminar particularly focuses on the development of China’s sustainable finance ecosystem. The seminar will also highlight the urgency for China to strengthen its sustainable finance ecosystem to support its own transition toward a low-carbon economy.
