Implementing Green Capital Markets

Monday, November 4, 2019 - Tuesday, November 5, 2019

Program Overview

Toronto Centre, in partnership with the Capital Markets Authority of Morocco, invites you to participate in an informative and interactive workshop that will identify actions to implement the Marrakech Pledge. 

The Marrakech Pledge was a call to action for African regulators and exchanges to develop green capital markets that promote climate resilient investments and drive capital into the green economy.  The pledge also seeks to build partnerships across the continent as well as in regional and local markets. 

This workshop is an important first step in implementing the pledge; it will be action-focused and will conclude with initial contents for a White Paper on next steps to build green markets and regional partnerships.

Participants will share insights and questions while learning about critical topics including:

  • Instruments that are most needed by investors and how to support their development
  • How to improve information disclosure and transparency for investors and regulators
  • Understanding the new risks that green capital markets raise and how to handle them
  • The importance of building multi-stakeholder partnerships, including international and collaborative groups

Small group discussions will be organized with topics that will address issues for different levels of market development, and guest speakers will share their experiences and insights on enabling instruments like blended finance. 

Target Audience

The program is designed for mid- to senior-level staff and managers involved in capital markets regulatory and supervisory activities. Participants should have at least three years of working experience in financial sector supervision, analysis or policy, and be proficient in English.
