Course Description This course will focus on the practice of financing sustainable development. During the past several years, there has been significant attention given to the challenges of mobilizing public and private finance for sustainable development. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Paris Climate Agreement (PCA) have spurred a significant amount of activity in public policy, regulation, new financial instruments and asset class development. As a result, financing sustainable development is even more complicated than it was before, and requires students to have an understanding of a broad range of topics. The goal of this course is to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the practical realities of the topic of sustainable finance. The course instructor has been directly involved with major aspects of the topic, including as a policy advisor to the United Nations, an expert advisor to the Asian Development Bank and Uganda Development Bank, and a senior executive at various global financial institutions.
