Tools & Technology for Financing Sustainable Development

Across the Mekong subregion, enhancing environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards for large-scale development projects is becoming increasingly strengthened through collaboration between investors and lenders. In this third webinar of our Sustainable Finance Initiative series with The Asia Foundation, we’ll gauge the sustainability of development projects for financing through case studies from the region and look at global spatial applications for analyzing climate resilience and financing.

This webinar will be joined by experts from the USAID and Australia Mekong Safeguards Program, USAID Green Invest Asia, and USAID SERVIR-Mekong who will introduce tools, technology, and use cases that promote environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria for development through sustainable financing initiatives.

Participants will gain knowledge of new tools and technologies that enhance environmental and social standards when organizations invest in energy, agriculture, transport, and water projects in the Mekong subregion.
