The finance we need for the futures we want: The role of national development banks
Last year’s Finance in Common Summit brought together, for the first time, all public development banks around the world. These 450+ institutions, the majority of whom are national, account for a staggering 10% of total annual public and private investments global. They jointly committed to support the transformation of the global economy and societies towards sustainable and resilient development. They form a unique and hopeful coalition that wants to do much more.

Join us for a concrete and forward-looking discussion between Manish Bapna, Acting President and CEO, WRI, and Rémy Rioux, CEO of Agence Française de Développement, Chair of the International Development Finance Club (IDFC) and host of the Finance in Common General Secretariat, on the unique role of national development banks in building a green recovery. The conversation will discuss how such institutions, rooted in their respective economic and social fabrics, can build bridges between governments and the private sector, domestic and international agendas, global liquidity and microeconomic solutions, and between short-term and longer-term priorities. The exchange will focus on how to tap their full potential as catalysts for reorienting global finance towards the global climate and sustainable development goals.

Following the discussion, the participants will take questions from the audience.
