The environmental degradation in Lebanon is expected to have serious repercussions on the food, energy, water security and a negative impact on vital sectors including health, tourism and agriculture.
Through SwitchMed, SCP/RAC promotes the creation of a National Impact Investing Task Force in Lebanon with the aim of stimulating the local discussion between potential investors, private and public finance institutions, donors and other relevant stakeholders about the needs and opportunities to advocate for and promote the adoption of sustainable finance solutions on benefit of a more resilient business ecosystem.
Against this background, the National Impact Task Force will collectively help define a vision on how financial institutions could enable the transition and contribute to the sustainable development of the local and regional economy. The national Task force will also seek to identify focus areas for concrete next steps and leveraging experiences from other countries.
The National Impact Task Force will be held in 3 different online sessions on Thursday 10 February 2022, Wednesday 23 February 2022 and Wednesday 9 March 2022 at 10.00-11.30 AM (Beirut time).
