 400 to 600 billion USD are needed to protect land, forests and water each year. Another 350 billion USD are needed for renewable resources and resource efficiency projects. But the budget gap remains 70 billion USD according to the new climate funding report.

 GCPS has built a strategic partnership with CBI in 2017 to promote the innovative development of green bonds together.
