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.
Listen to Nicolas Moyer, President and CEO of CCIC, and Shannon Kindornay, Director of Research, Policy and Practice, as they discuss about the importance of innovative financing and give us a glimpse of the new podcast series on this topic.
Here are the topics that will be covered in the next episodes along with the release dates:
- July 25: Leveraging the private sector. With: Christian Novak (FMA – Frontier Markets Advisors) and Janet Longmore (Digital Opportunity Trust)
- August 1 : Performance base financing. With Emily Measures (Nutrition international) and David O’Leary (World Vision)
- August 8: Gender-lens investing. Ryan Clark (Global Issues and Development Branch, Global Affairs Canada), Joy Anderson (Criterion Institute) and Jessica Villanueva (MEDA).
