Network of Regulators for Sustainable Development (REDES)

A pathway towards green and inclusive growth requires, among other issues, policy frameworks to promote financial stability and market discipline by mitigating risks and providing regulatory transparency in the financial sector, as well as innovative financial instruments. Sustainability and the transition to a low-carbon and more resource-efficient economy are also relevant to ensure long-term competitiveness in LAC. In this scenario, national financial authorities are seeking to understand and assess new risks and opportunities, so that they can be translated into effective strategies to generate new sources of information for market players, influence capital allocation and facilitate the transition to a more sustainable economy.


The mission of REDES is to promote sustainable regulation and supervision among Latin American and the Caribbean countries and consolidate a regional forum to identify common challenges and facilitate the coordination of policies and initiatives in the face of the global agenda.
