The agenda for the forum has been carefully crafted to include thought-provoking discussions, insightful presentations, and engaging interactions. Our distinguished panelists and speakers, who are experts in their respective fields, will share their knowledge, experiences, and innovative solutions. Their collective wisdom will illuminate the path to a climate-smart future in which DFIs play a critical role in driving sustainable development and addressing climate change challenges.

We will delve into key strategies used by DFIs to drive climate action and foster a greener, more sustainable world. These efforts not only help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also to promote long-term economic growth, social development, and environmental sustainability.

In addition to the enriching program, we invite you to immerse yourself in the warmth and hospitality of Abuja.
