    Course Description

    Countries in South and South East Asia are highly exposed to the consequences of climate change, notably through the increased risk and impact of natural disasters. The region also includes two of the twenty largest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world. Involvement of Ministries of Finance and integration of climate objectives in public financial management (PFM) to increase capacities in selecting, financing and implementing "green" policies will be key going forward to tackle these challenges.
