At this dialogue, speakers addressed the two main topics of:

  • Share and discuss the global trends, best practices, and recent developments with regard to climate finance regulation and green capital market initiatives.
  • Explore the opportunities for building effective global and regional partnerships among regulators, exchanges, and central securities depositories, with a particular focus on promoting the sharing of knowledge and experience (North-to-South, South-to-North and South-to-South) as well as the spread of best practices and the development of local expertise in developing and emerging countries.
