The fourth episode of the Finance for Resilience podcast takes a look at what green bonds are and how to encourage their growth in developing markets.

The fourth episode unpacks the topic of green bonds and the challenges and benefits associated with this financing mechanism.

Considering the significant climate finance gap, green bonds are likely to play a crucial role in meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement. However, the growth of the market in the global South has lagged in comparison to the rest of the world.

Kamlesh is joined by guests Megan Sager, Director of Sustainable Solutions in Cape Town, Robert Bunyi, Managing Director of Kenya Pooled Water Fund and Sandeep Bhattacharya, India project manager at the Climate Bonds Initiative.
