About Finance in Common

The main purpose of the event is to bring together all public development banks (PDBs) from all around the world, together with their main partners, with a view to showcase how they play an irreplaceable role making finance more inclusive and sustainable.

SMEs AND FINANCIAL INCLUSION

Smaller businesses, women or vulnerable populations are traditionally excluded from the formal financial system and PDBs can play a key role to increase their economic opportunities.

Climate and biodiversity

PDBs must have a leading role in developing new tools to close the financial gap for mitigation and adaptation to climate change and to promote the protection of natural capital and the biodiversity.

Sustainable infrastructure

Most emerging economies face infrastructure investment gaps along with the need to make the energy transition, increase digital connectivity and ensure sustainable access to basic services for all.

PDBs institutional agenda

All these challenges ahead need better institutional capacity, regulation, and governance of the development finance ecosystem.

The objective of the event, building on existing coalitions, is to create new alliances for the future of development banking.

Through innovative financing solutions and tools, contributing to the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs).
