European Microfinance Week 2019

This session tackled the role of financial inclusion investors in increasing vulnerable populations' resilience. With a focus on Central and Latin America, where climate change is increasing instability in several countries but which can lead some investors to respond by reducing their exposure and limiting risk, representatives from leading sector investors discussed how their investments aim to strengthen the resilience of the end client, what the main challenges and opportunities are for investors in this field, and how they envisage the investors' role in contributing to the sector's efforts to tackle climate change.
