This is the second webinar in a two-part dialogue series for infrastructure investors and financers in the Mekong Region. It aims to foster dialogue between stakeholders and build incentive towards strengthened environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards related to large regional infrastructure projects. Building on our first webinar on August 19, 2021 "The Role of ESG Standards in Financing Opportunities for Post-COVID Green Recovery in the Mekong Region", this follow-up webinar focuses on providing real-world case studies implemented/analyzed by renowned international organizations with extended regional experiences in sustainable infrastructure financing. This webinar will also include experts from Fair Finance Asia (Oxfam), the Climate Bonds Initiative and the Asia Foundation.
