One of the biggest drivers of growth in the global green economy is innovative collaboration between private capital and sovereign and municipal finance. The green and social bond markets, for example, reached 1 trillion+ issuance in the third quarter 2020. One of the key challenges in ensuring that this global growth is sustainable and equitable is managing the rise of urbanization, in both developed and developing economies. In this webinar, Martina Macpherson from Moody's, Elisabetta Colombo from V.E, and Jaffer Machano from United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) will cover the most pressing issues, such as managing credit risk, structuring private capital deployment, and assessing the capacity of local governments to address these urbanization challenges. What is becoming increasingly clear is that these market-based financial solutions are delivering significant economic benefits to communities and investors.
