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 the capital allocation and facilitate the transition to a more sustainable economy.
