Challenges and Opportunities for Green Finance in Central America and the Caribbean, March 2021
Webinar series organised by the e-MFP's Green Inclusive & Climate Smart Finance Action Group
Across the Central American region, there is a growing need for critical changes in agricultural practices and other sustainable economic activities, especially at the level of small producers and farmers, who need financing and technical support to introduce sustainable ways of farming and agro-production. The webinar will focus on the progress the microfinance sector in Central America has made in promoting green finance, as well as the present and future challenges and opportunities identified in the regional markets.
The speaker, Allan Pérez, project coordinator at REDCAMIF, a regional microfinance association with 100 institutional members and seven national microfinance networks that supports the microfinance sector and promotes sustainable economic and human development, will share REDCAMIF's experience in promoting green finance in Central America and the Dominican Republic, strengthening microfinance institutions to provide financial support for investment needs, productive assets, and good environmental practices.
