European Microfinance Week 2019

This was the first of five sessions that delved into the topic of the European Microfinance Award 2019 "Strengthening resilience to Climate Change". Its aim was to set the scene and provide a broad overview of the landscape of climate change, its impact, its challenges, and the responses of the financial inclusion sector to tackle them. This session was a must to broaden understanding on how our sector plays a key role in addressing climate change and strengthens clients' preparedness and readiness to the consequences of climate change. Sectoral experts and practitioners presented experiences of responses to resolve climate change challenges from the inclusive finance sector with some typical examples of what has worked and what has not.
