Roadmap for a Sustainable Financial System : Summary for Consultation
United Nations Environment Programme

UN Environment and the World Bank Group view the over-arching objective of a sound financial system as being to provide finance that meets the long-term needs of an inclusive, environmentally sustainable economy. While there is no single blueprint or unique pathway for creating such a “sustainable financial system”, it is possible to describe its many characteristics and progress towards it. The Roadmap initiative intends to design an action plan that moves towards a sustainable financial system, including its elements, sequencing and principal actors, and a basis for measuring progress. The Roadmap will build on the extensive experience of both partners and many other active in the field.

Global Adaptation Network Brochure
United Nations Environment Programme

Adaptation is a multidisciplinary undertaking, requiring collaboration from diverse actors operating in different sectors and this makes it critical to share information. While much knowledge exists for successful adaptation, it is often fragmented and not always accessible to diverse stakeholders. The mobilization and sharing of knowledge and experiences is therefore, critical for informing adaptation decision-making, planning and practice. The Global Adaptation Network (GAN) aims to address this need.
