Abstract

After the Paris Climate Conference in 2015, the majority of countries and sovereigns agreed to tackle the global climate changes. From finance perspectives, green and sustainable finance plays an essential role to reduce carbon emissions, to develop resilient climate infrastructure and environmental sustainability to achieve one of the sustainable goals in 2030. Among Asia-Pacific countries, million people and households, especially farmers, in the Mekong Delta of Vietnam are severely affected by droughts and saline water intrusion into their rice and fruit farming area. It might be a consequence of climate change, global warming, and construction of hydropower dams on the upper Mekong River. This is just a typical example that we stand on the brink of the climate challenges from many different sectors in the economy. We believe that the financial system has a quickly adaptive ability to adjust and develop the potential mechanisms to direct the capital flows to meet sustainable development; for example, the establishment of the green bond market or low-carbon finance. In order to mobilize the required resources, studying ‘Green and Sustainable Finance in the Asia-Pacific Markets’ is a need, indeed.
