A decision has been reached to publish a robust roadmap to raise funds for green finance projects in 2023.
President Ranil Wickremesinghe instructed the appointment of a green finance committee, which will be chaired by Senior Advisor to the President on Climate Change Ruwan Wijewardena.
A preliminary discussion was held this morning (17) at the Presidential Secretariat, chaired by Wijewardena.
Green finance involves directing financial resources to address climate change challenges and to transition towards a low carbon economy.
The Roadmap on Green Finance aims to merge ongoing processes like green finance, green bonds, climate finance, etc., into a single platform with a clear scope, measures, and targets.
During the discussion, significant attention was given to these issues.
Several officials, including Senior Additional Secretary to the President Chandani Wijewardene, Additional Secretary Vernon Perera, and others, were present at the discussion.
