e-MFP & NpM are holding a one day training for investors on green inclusive finance, prepared and delivered by Enclude BV, organised by the e-MFP Microfinance & Environment Action Group and hosted by NpM.

The training will introduce investors and donors to green inclusive finance: state of the art and lessons learnt, how to assess environmental performance of financial institutions, what are the investment opportunities and challenges, and a perspective for the future.

The format will be interactive including case studies, guided discussions, group work, and presentations. The general picture will be presented along best international and local practices, and actual examples of green initiatives and interactive discussions and group work will be privileged over theory.
