UNEP FI and Ecobanking Project deliver ESRA Training to Financial Institutions In Ivory Coast

25-27 June 2018 | Ivory Coast


UNEP FI and Ecobanking Project/INCAE Business School are partnering with the International Trade Centre (ITC), the African Guarantee Fund for Small and Medium Enterprises (AGF) and the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) to deliver a Training Workshop on Environmental and Social Risk Analysis (ESRA) with a focus on SME designed for financial institutions in Ivory Coast.

The workshop, offered for the first time in French by UNEP FI and its Partners, will be held a few days after the Green Finance Conference that will take place in the country on 19 and 20 June. The Green Finance Conference is co-organised by the Government of Ivory Coast, the African Development Bank (ADB), ITC, AGF and NDF.

The training session – which focuses on environmental and social risks in lending and investment and opportunities resulting in adopting green finance practices (Introductory Workshop) – will be one of a series of trainings on Green Finance held in Ivory Coast from 25 to 27 June 2018.

The training aims to raise awareness of potential aggregated risk across different lending products offered by financial institutions, especially in relation to a given sector and its supply chain. Additionally the training aims to guide participants through strategies and tools to detect, mitigate and evaluate these environmental and social risks.
