April 2021
Bryan Ricketts

On March 31, 2021, the University of Michigan Center on Finance, Law & Policy convened a roundtable of central bankers, policy experts, and researchers to examine the intersection of climate change and financial inclusion. Participants included a small group of central bankers, policymakers, and researchers from seven countries who have expertise in these issues. The Roundtable attendees participated in the conversation under Chatham House Rule. Therefore, the ideas presented in this paper are not attributed or attributable to any one participant. These ideas are also not necessarily reflective of the opinion of the participants or authors and are certainly not an exhaustive exploration of the topics at hand. The authors have synthesized and reordered the discussion to effectively convey the thoughts and ideas presented at the Roundtable.
