As the COVID-19 pandemic develops around the world, the Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative is adapting its program of work to ensure that our discussions on climate mainstreaming can continue at a rhythm adapted to the availability and needs of our Supporting Institutions. The Climate Action in Financial Institutions Initiative will not be able to hold any in-person meetings in the coming months, but exchanges will continue through a reinforced program of webinars aiming to foster both information and experience sharing.
