UNEP FI has established a network of Regional Working Groups to support activities with financial institutions and supporting organisations around the world. Regional UNEP FI co-ordinators with a regional focus provide an opportunity for Signatories to interact and share knowledge and good practice with other members in the region, as well as with Signatories globally.

This provides a regional network and hub for innovation and expertise, as well as UNEP FI training, activities and events.

UNEP FI Regional Co-ordinators organise calls and meetings, share the initiative’s latest international research and tools, undertake surveys to understand local needs and sustainable finance agendas, engage members in projects, share good practice, establish networks across public and private sector stakeholders and facilitate Regional Round Tables (from 2017).
