Emerging Market Green Bonds - Report 2018

In October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) urged the world to intensify its efforts to combat climate change by meeting the goal of the 2016 Paris Agreement to limit global temperature increases to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Over the past 35 years, upper middle-income nations have contributed more than 70 percent of the global growth in carbon dioxide emissions. However, emerging markets are more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change due to inadequate capacity and adaptation mechanisms to effectively deal with extreme weather changes, such as rises in the sea level, floods, droughts, tropical storms, hurricanes, and heatwaves.

Emerging markets are not only the most exposed economies to climate change risks, but also face an unprecedented challenge to decarbonize their economies, while maintaining a sustainable economic development trajectory.

    White papersFri, 23 Aug 2019

    Donald Trump proposed additional 10% tariffs on a further US$300 billion worth of Chinese imports from 1 September. This is surprising, given that the two countries appeared to have found some common ground at the G20 meeting in June. However, the truce was short-lived and China responded with its own set of measures in form of a suspension of US agricultural imports and currency devaluation, which could further escalate the situation.
