Designing a Sustainable Financial System in Bangladesh: Summary Briefing Flyer

United Nations Environment Programme (2015)

Much of the most creative reform to green the financial system is taking place in countries as diverse as Brazil, China, Indonesia, and South Africa. Leadership from the less developed countries is, for understandable reasons, rarer so the case of Bangladesh stands out. Taking full advantage of its broad mandate, the Bangladesh Bank has launched a series of pioneering initiatives to stimulate the rapid growth of green and inclusive finance, hoping thus to accelerate the transformation of the wider finance and capital markets in the same direction. The below panel, moderated by Mark Halle, Vice-President, Strategy and Executive Director of IISD-Europe, will discuss a series of questions, drawing on the case of Bangladesh and comparing it with experience from other developing countries.
