3RD WORKSHOP FOR PRACTITIONERS
FROM EXPORT CREDIT AGENCIES AND OTHER FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

Export Credit Agencies and other Financial Institutions are increasingly concerned about the potential environmental and social (E&S) impacts of the projects that they support, either commercially or for developmental purposes.
