GlobalDF sets forth country finance solutions at the Addis Ababa FfD Conference
In collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Swedish government, and the Mexican Government, GlobalDF convened the side event “The New Financing Framework for Sustainable Development: How to Create Investment Opportunities at Scale?” at the 2015 Third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
GlobalDF Executive Director Dr. Barbara Samuels presented “Connecting Supply and Demand: Building Local Infrastructure Markets for Sustainable Development Results.” The presentation stressed the imperative for deepening and anchoring enabling finance interventions at the country level, a requirement for building the required pipelines of bankable projects. Critical actions include the development of local catalytic frameworks and local hubs of finance professionals that incubate local marketplaces, stimulating and capacitating the development of bankable projects required to deliver on the SDGs and Climate Goals.
