The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has just published, “Financing an Inclusive and Green Future”. The report considers the challenges that the Asia Pacific region faces in achieving its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It also shows how Asia and the Pacific can take the lead in developing a more inclusive and development-friendly financial system that will reach out to the millions of ‘unbanked’. Lastly, the report discusses the challenges in promoting growth that is not only inclusive but also sustainable.
