Green Finance Committee to Develop 2023 Roadmap for Climate Funding

To raise funds for green finance projects in 2023, it has been decided to publish a robust roadmap. President Ranil Wickremesinghe has instructed the appointment of a green finance committee, which will be chaired by Mr. Ruwan Wijewardena, Senior Advisor to the President on Climate Change.

A preliminary discussion was held this morning ( 17) at the Presidential Secretariat, chaired by Mr. Wijewardena.

Green finance involves directing financial resources to address climate change challenges and to transition towards a low carbon economy.

The Roadmap on Green Finance aims to merge ongoing processes like green finance, green bonds, climate finance, etc., into a single platform with a clear scope, measures, and targets. During the discussion, significant attention was given to these issues.

Several officials, including Senior Additional Secretary to the President Chandani Wijewardene, Additional Secretary Vernon Perera, and others, were present at the discussion.


The Presidential Media Division is fully responsible for socializing the views, actions, decisions and statements of His Excellency the President through the media. Electronic, print and new media will contribute to this through a credible and engaging approach.

The media department works as a source of information on the subject of the President’s vision and mission by maintaining good coordination with public and private media organizations and journalists.

National policies, plans and measures are explained to the people through the use of high quality media. Identify the fallacies and reveal the truth.
