Lunchtime Talk

The Future of Development Finance

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) present the world with a challenge and an opportunity. The challenge comes as much from the hard deadline set for achieving them, 2030, as from the goals themselves. The opportunity is for the global development architecture to become more efficient and more relevant and deliver far more impact.

 Sir Suma Chakrabarti, EBRD President, will draw upon a lifetime of experience in the development sector and the Bank’s own history to lay out his vision of the future of development.

 The EBRD business model, one focussed on investment in the private sector coupled with extensive work on policy reform, is likely to play a major role in that future.

Sir Suma will examine that model closely and also argue that, to deliver the SDGs, Multilateral Development Banks need to work together much more closely as well as leverage their respective strengths.

His lecture will be delivered in the context of the G20 Eminent Persons Group on Global Finance Governance, chaired by Singapore Deputy Prime Minister, Tharman Shanmugaratnam, whose report on the subject will come out the following week.
