AFI Calls for In-Country Implementation Projects on Inclusive Green Finance for MSMEs

The Alliance for Financial Inclusion is launching an initiative to support members in conducting research on inclusive green finance for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), with the view to provide further insights and policy guidance to the broader network.

The members of the AFI network have been pioneering the concept of Inclusive Green Finance (IGF). IGF aims to enable climate change mitigation and build resilience among the most vulnerable groups. Women are disproportionately impacted by climate change, and in IGF policy development, there needs to be a specific focus on empowering women in these efforts. Ensuring access and the use of financial services to low-income populations and vulnerable groups allows them to adapt and build resilience to the changing climate and transition to low-carbon activities.
