Exploring environmental, social and governance (ESG) and sustainable finance solutions for African sovereigns

en Download (1018.14 KB)

The objective of this report is to explore how African countries can use debt instruments with an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) focus to meet their financing requirements based on the experience of sovereign issuers in Africa and other emerging markets. We primarily focus on understanding the terms and conditions of the sovereign green bonds, given their relatively advanced development compared with other forms of ESG financing. However, where relevant, other types of ESG-related financing are discussed, such as sustainability linked bonds and debt-for-climate swaps.
