UNU-IAS Operating Unit Ishikawa Kanazawa (OUIK) will be hosting its 17th SDGs Café on the topic of “Environmental Finance and a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Project for a Regional Circular Economy” on 31 May 2021 from 18:30 – 20:00 JST.
To achieve the SDGs and transform society, it is essential to develop a system to encourage funds to flow to individuals, organisations or businesses who contribute to realising a sustainable society. Highlighting the case of an environmental project under a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) scheme in Kanazawa City, Ishikawa, the SDGs Café #17 examines how the partnership for the project among the municipal government, local financial institutions, and local business entities and the environmental financial method – green bond – are realising the scheme which stimulates positive local economic circulation as well as promotes carbon dioxide emission reduction.
