Call for Papers on Scaling Up Green Finance in Asia: The Role of Policies and Regulations
Scaling Up Green Finance in Asia: The Role of Policies and Regulations
Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI), Energy Studies Institute (ESI) at the National University of Singapore, and Journal of Sustainable Finance and Investment (JSFI)
14-15 November 2019
The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report notes the importance of mobilizing green finance to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius and preventing catastrophic climate change. Fully implementing the Paris Agreement to meet this climate target will require US$1.5 trillion in green financing annually through 2030, according to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. At the same time, raising green finance is key to meeting Asia’s surging energy demand fuelled by economic growth, population growth, and enhanced energy access.
A major shift in investment patterns will be needed to ignite green finance in the region which is a growing focus of government policies. Increasingly, new measures supporting green finance are being implemented in Asia such as green bond standards, green bond grant schemes, green loans, sustainability disclosure, and reporting requirements.
ADBI, the National University of Singapore’s Energy Studies Institute, and Journal of Sustainable Finance and Investment invite paper submissions addressing green finance development in Asia. Priority topics include, but are not limited to:
- Green finance growth, market development, and market barriers
- The role of governments in promoting green finance
- National policies supporting green finance
- Green finance definitions, standards, and guidance at international, national, and corporate levels
- International, national, and corporate sustainability disclosure and reporting
- National policies boosting demand for green finance
- Public green finance as a driver of private green finance
