The Finance in Common Summit is the first global meeting of all public development banks and will address the common need to build new forms of prosperity that take care of the living (people and planet) in a resilient manner.
The Summit is taking place during the Paris Peace Forum.
ln the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent global socio-economic crisis, the Summit will stress the crucial role of public development banks in reconciling short-term counter-cyclical responses to the crisis with sustainable recovery measures that will have a long-term impact on the planet and societies.
The Finance in Common Summit, taking place in Paris and virtually, aims to reconcile the entire finance community in support of the common action for climate and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It will bring together the development bank community along with other key stakeholders, such as heads of state and representatives from governments, the private sector, civil society, think tanks and academia.
The Summit is an initiative of the World Federation of Development Finance Institutions and the International Development Finance Club, and is convened by the Agence française de développement with the support of several partner organizations.
