MEbA Workshop on Risk Management and Strategic Alliances for Microfinance and Ecosystem-based Adaptation

Wednesday, October 14, 2015 - 08:00 to Thursday, October 15, 2015 - 20:00

This year the MEbA project’s annual workshop took place in Bogotá, Colombia under the topic of “Risk Management and Strategic Alliances for Microfinance and Ecosystem-based Adaptation”. More than 60 participants from the project’s five partner microfinance institutions, ministries, banks, insurance companies and other institutions from Peru and Colombia attended the workshop. The participants had the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the topic through various case studies and to exchange experiences made so far with project implementation. In several working group sessions the participants gained insights into the areas of climate insurance, climate change and credit risk, and public private partnerships.
