GlobalDF helps design the Global Investors for Sustainable Development Alliance (GISD Alliance) convened by the UN Secretary-General
GlobalDF Executive Director Dr. Barbara Samuels served as senior advisor to the United Nations Office of Financing for Development assisting in the design of the Global Investors for Sustainable Development Alliance (GISD Alliance). The GISD Alliance is a group of leaders of major financial institutions and corporations from across the world convened by the United Nations Secretary-General to deliver solutions that scale up private finance and investment to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (see GISD Joint Statement). GISD’s work is supported by a Strategy Group appointed by the CEOs and by United Nations system partners coordinated by UN DESA. GISD benefits from the generous support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). For more info, please see https://www.gisdalliance.org.
