The workshop entitled “Gap Analysis and Green Activity Planning” is the fourth and final part of our Green Inclusive Finance series, and will be building on Part II on environmental performance assessment. The results of the Green Index assessment from the previous session will be communicated to each MFI in advance via email, along with the benchmark (the average value of all the scores of the MFIs that participated in the previous session). We will also send a short survey with 5-10 questions regarding the MFI’s green inclusive finance plan. In the workshop, we will present the overall results of the environmental assessment done in the previous session and undertake a gap analysis. We will then present a methodology for MFIs to plan green activities in order to improve their environmental performance and achieve their green objectives. Practical examples will be provided.
