English-speaking webinar, with simultaneous translation in French on Zoom only.

The first global summit of all public development banks,Finance in Common, taking place from November 9 to 12 in Paris, is a key moment to highlight the role that public development banks can play both in the global economic recovery and in implementing the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals. 

IDDRI, as a scientific partner of the summit, has prepared a study based on interviews with more than twenty public development banks, in order to analyse and to assess how and under what conditions these banks do - or do not - align their practices with the 2030 Agenda and can be catalysts for sustainable investments and transformations.

In order to introduce the main messages and recommendations of this cutting-edge study, and to bring them in line with the main themes addressed by the Finance in Common Summit, IDDRI brought together a high-level panel of key players in the development banking sector.
