Can digital solutions help new players in African markets to secure green debt?
A key purpose of the Green Assets Wallet is to help scale the green debt market, improve transparency for investors, and reward credible actors – especially in emerging markets where we see a huge untapped potential of investable green projects. In October, we’re going to Kenya where we co-host an interactive workshop on the Green Assets Wallet together with the Nairobi Securities Exchange and the Nairobi International Financial Centre. Key participating actors include the Capital Markets Authority who just approved the issuance of Kenya’s first unlisted green bond. Under the lead of Numi Östlund, AidHedge, we are also co-developing a guide directed to African markets on issues such as how to package green projects into a bond and use digital solutions to access global investors.
Stay tuned for the release of the African Guide later this year!
