From Green Microfinance to Climate-Smart Inclusive Finance: Lessons Learnt & New Directions

Since 2011, ADA has supported a number of its partner microfinance institutions in Latin America, Asia and Africa in developing financial services for environment- and climate-friendly uses and practices, such as sustainable agriculture, the use of renewable energies or energy-efficient equipment, eco-responsible home improvements and/or sanitation, etc.

During this webinar, ADA will share the lessons learnt from these past experiences and introduce its new ambitions on the topic. Indeed, ADA is now working to structure and intensify its involvement to provide a more holistic, consistent and relevant response to the climate issues faced by its target populations. As an example, ADA will expand its intervention topics – from agriculture to sustainable landscape management – as well as its scope of financial and technical partners.
