New Podcast Series on Innovative Development Finance

New Podcast Series on Innovative Development Finance

Achieving the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its intersecting Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will require a collective global investment of trillions of dollars annually. To reach the levels of financing needed to leave no one behind in global development, states, civil society, the private sector and other partners in development cooperation will need to jointly leverage significant additional investments. Accordingly, growing attention is being paid to innovative financing for development. 

But what is “innovative” financing really? To try to answer this question, CCIC held a two-day event on Innovative Development Finance in June 2019, in Ottawa. During this event, we recorded interviews with key speakers on this topic and we are presenting them in a new series of podcasts. Here are the themes that will be covered and the release dates:  

Moreover, an episode in French will be available where we hear examples of innovating financing from Marisol Quirion (Développement International Desjardins) and Alain Plouffe (SOCODEVI). This episode will be release on July 25, 2019 and available here
