According to bank website, the client is Advans International, an MFI group operating in Africa and Asia. Conscious that its clients will be the most affected by climate change, Advans has defined a Climate Change Strategy, to integrate the effects and impacts of climate change into its core business model. In order to successfully implement this strategy, Advans needs to mobilize all of its key stakeholders and ensure they are aware of the impact climate change will have on its operations. FMO therefore funds a Climate Capacity Building Program to support Advans to make sure that all key stakeholders: i) understand the impacts and implications of climate change, globally but especially in their local context, and the consequences and possible opportunities for the microfinance industry and microfinance clients and; ii) are able to integrate climate change aspects into their strategic and operational objectives and ways of working.
