The next decade is critical for the low-carbon transition and mobilizing investment for sustainable development. Emerging markets are expected to be the worst affected by climate change. However, they also have great potential for mitigation and adaptation projects, which can be funded by green bonds. While relatively small compared with the global bond market, the emerging market fixed income segment is sufficiently large and many bond issuers are well-equipped to become first-time green bond issuers. So, when we will see more emerging markets take these steps towards widespread green bond issuance, and what does this mean for investors? This webinar will cover the experience of green bond issuers in emerging markets and the benefits and challenges that they have experienced so far.
