ICIFA / CISI Webinar on Climate Risks and Financing
The Institute of Certified Investment and Financial Analysts in partnership with the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment organized a webinar themed Climate Risks and Push Towards Green Fiance: is Kenya Ready? It aimed to discuss climate risks in Kenya and to understand the role of public and private sector finance in mitigating climate risks and push to green finance. Susfari was invited as part of the panellist and was represented by Ms. Waithira Gichiri. Ms. Gichiri presented on the various climate risks in a global and local context, discussing the resulting risks for the financial sector. She also expounded on Green Finance outlining the numerous green investment opportunities in the country as well as the national policy frameworks in the country supporting this, in particular climate finance.
This was a great opportunity for Susfari as it provided an opportunity to live up to our mission of creating opportunities through knowledge dissemination. The participants expressed gratitude from gaining insight into the various issues and topics addressed, and wished for more platforms as the webinar provided. As Susfari we are committed to mainstreaming the knowledge on sustainability and climate resilience to different professionals and sectors as we believe this is how sustainable and climate resilient societies are built.
