Financial Inclusion for the Green Economy

Financial Inclusion for the Green Economy is an ongoing project that will lead to a full report released by the CSPC.

F.I.G.E. creates a safe space and participatory action research engaging women from a host of diverse communities in order to identify current and future barriers to financial inclusion in the green economy. Working in partnership with Victoria Community Micro- Lending, the Inclusion Project, Sewlutions and Synergy Enterprises, our goal is to advance gender equality through participatory action research. The final report will include levers for change, enabling the project to shift economic, political, and social power, towards increased equality. The project report will begin a local process for ensuring the inclusion of the green economy as we build it. For the priority of Planet, FIGE strengthens participation of disadvantaged women in the green future.
