About this learning event

The 2024 CEF-CIPFA conference, Charting a Greener Horizon: Navigating Towards Sustainable Public Finances, provides a platform to address critical issues at the intersection of finance, sustainability, and climate change. Featuring a diverse program of presentations, panel discussions, case studies, and networking opportunities, the event will offer an excellent opportunity for public officials, policymakers, and PFM experts to engage in discussions, share knowledge, and collaborate across disciplines. With this event, we aim to support regional initiatives for a greener and more sustainable future, in-line with the Green Agenda for the Western Balkans and the European Green Deal.
