GB-TAP Training: Stimulating the Supply of Green Bonds in Emerging Markets

The GB-TAP Training Program aims to grow the green bond market in developing countries by stimulating the volume and improving the quality of green bonds. A knowledge gap among bond issuers impedes the supply of green bonds in emerging markets. This training is tailored to financial institutions in emerging markets and is delivered in two formats: in-class executive training and facilitated e-learning programs. Watch Video here

Executive Training Programs

IFC, together with the International Capital Markets Association (ICMA) and the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), designed and implemented the Green Bonds and Sustainable Finance Executive Training. This program prepares financial institutions to issue green bonds and finance green projects. The first two cohorts were trained in-person in Stockholm in June and October 2019. The curriculum was redesigned as a facilitated online program to adapt to COVID-19-related travel restrictions.

IFC and ICMA designed and implemented the Green, Social, and Sustainable Bonds Executive Online Training. This four-week e-learning program includes self-study modules, virtual classrooms, and working-group sessions. The program is designed to prepare emerging market financial institutions to issue green, social, and sustainability bonds.
