  1. Financial institutions (FIs) operating across the region increasingly adopt or improve sustainable finance policies, practices, and public disclosure.
  2. Regulators and governments increase independent monitoring of FI policy, practice and accountability and transparency, and improve the regulation of FIs, including through mandatory regulation.
  3. Regional financial sector actors take increasing actions to require and enforce improved standards for FIs’ policies, practices, accountability, and transparency.
  4. Strong and resilient civil society across the region effectively influences the sustainable finance agenda across the region, integrating a gender lens and community voice
  5. Other actors (intermediary stakeholders) have increased awareness and take increased action to influence the sustainable finance agenda
