WebIDEAS – Designing Green Bonds for India
Date: January 08, 2015 Time: 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm IST, 10:00 am to 11:00 am GMT
One of the major constraints restricting the growth of Indian renewable energy sector is high cost of funding and low tenure. Green Bonds are one of the key financial instruments that can provide access to scalable long-term, low-cost debt from institutional investors. The USAID PACE-D TA Program is working with several stakeholders in evaluating and designing Green Bonds as a financing option in India.
The program, in collaboration with the Climate Bonds Initiative, is organizing a webinar on January 08, 2015 to deliberate on the need of Green Bonds in India and the proposed approach and structure for the Indian market. The webinar is free and open to the public.
