Who is this event for?

Organisations who are able to deliver technical assistance projects that will build capacity in the thematic areas outlined below and would like to find out how to apply.

China Call for Proposals

We are looking for proposals within Green Finance. Specifically, within five pillars:

  1. Harmonisation - Alignment of Chinese green finance definitions and standards with international ones.
  2. Innovation - Supporting the secure and sustainable development of China’s financial market infrastructure and regulations to increase liquidity and enable investment into new green finance products and services.
  3. Transparency - Supporting Chinese financial institutions and listed companies for better reporting on climate-related financial risks and increased uptake of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) investment criteria.
  4. Capacity Building (Domestic) - Promoting knowledge-sharing and building core skills among Chinese green finance practitioners.
  5. Capacity Building (International) - Promoting knowledge-sharing and building core skills between Chinese and international green finance practitioners, ensuring Chinese overseas investments are as green as possible.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the socio-economic impact it is having in China, we also welcome innovative projects that respond to this situation across the above themes. Projects will be chosen through an open call to prospective applicants, following two stages: 1) an Expression of Interest (EOI) to outline how a proposed project responds to the call; and 2) a request for detailed proposals for those shortlisted at the EOI stage.
