This meeting brought together representatives from the finance sector, governments, NGOs, and academia at HSBC headquarters in support of UNEP FI’s work on finance and conflict. Its purpose was to better enable the development of relevant and practical proposals to the finance sector to maximize its contribution to conflict prevention and mitigation. Suggestions discussed at the workshop included, among others, tools for conflict assessment, guidelines for conflict management, and a compilation of case studies on good and bad practice in the finance sector.
