Access recording here>>

In partnership with UN Women and Lion’s Head Global Partners, we are holding this webinar to disseminate the findings from a study on the feasibility of issuing gender bonds in sub-Saharan Africa. This webinar seeks to elicit interest in the topic and to galvanise participants to consider the development of gender bonds standards to guide future gender bond issuances.

We will discuss the global gender bond market – the broad definition of a gender bond, the reference standards available, best practices and bonds issued to date & the viability of supporting a corporate gender bond issuance in sub-Saharan Africa.
