In January 2021, the SBN Measurement Working Group (MWG) co-chairs, Financial
Superintendence of Colombia (SFC), Mongolian
Sustainable Finance Association (MSFA), and Moroccan Capital Market Authority (AMMC), partnered with SBN to host 3 regional workshops for SBN members.
These technical exchanges are part of the development of SBN's 3rd Global Progress Report and Country Reports in 2021. The SBN Global Progress Report is the most comprehensive benchmarking of sustainable finance national frameworks in the emerging markets worldwide. 50 organizations from 35 countries were represented in these engaging discussions by 82 participants from financial regulatory institutions and banking associations, in addition to multiple IFC global and local teams.
During the workshops, the SBN Secretariat team presented the SBN 2021 Sustainable Finance Measurement Framework and how countries can leverage this Framework to design their national sustainable finance policies, guidelines, voluntary principles, and roadmaps. SBN members shared their national sustainable finance development journeys and exchanged experiences in critical areas, such as climate risk management and green taxonomies. All agreed that this regional technical discussion was a desirable format for knowledge sharing and capacity building.
