The said conference was held today at Unicaja Center for Financial Education in Malaga, with the attendance of international speakers, who have covered topics such as financial risk management and its treatment under Basel Standards and funding of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

 

The session started with the speech by Unicaja Banco’s General Director of General and Technical Secretariat, José M. Domínguez, and by the UNITAR’s Head of Social Inclusion Division and former minister of Finances in Ecuador, Alex Mejía, who has talked about the role of the financial system in the society and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

 

The conference has also had the participation of UNITAR’s Senior Consultant on Financial Risk Management and Public Finances and former representative of the Secretariat of Finance in Mexico, Enrique Cosio-Pascal, who has broken down the complexities of risk analysis and management in financial institutions; the methodological tools for risk management and their practical application, as well as the key requirements and the strategies to implement Basel Standards.

 

Finally, the conference has been closed with the speech by Unicaja Banco’s Head of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), José María López.

 

Unicaja Banco’s collaboration with the International Training Center for Authorities and Leaders (Cifal) Malaga falls within the agreement entered into by both institutions, through UNITAR, under which the financial institution provides economic support to this Center to contribute to the implementation of policies and practices aimed at promoting financial inclusion and sustainable development.

 

In this sense, Unicaja Banco’s support enables Cifal Malaga to be the first center in its global network to consider financial inclusion within its general goal of social inclusion.

The bank joined the UN’s Global Compact in 2013 and in 2017, the Spanish Network of the UN’s Global Compact.

 

UNITAR is an autonomous body of the UN, created in 1963, dedicated to training and aimed at improving the efficiency of United Nations’ action through diplomatic training, as well as increasing the impact of national actions through public awareness, education and providing the necessary skills to those responsible for the development of public policies.
