At current levels of investments, the United Nations (UN) estimated that developing countries face an annual funding gap of US$2.5 trillion in order to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030. This gap is projected to increase by USD 1.7 trillion in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is therefore crucial that we develop new innovative solutions that will help attract funding and channel it into countries and initiatives where it is most needed. We need technology and tools that will allow key stakeholders to collaborate and to direct investment into opportunities and impactful projects in developing countries.
In this session Investure and Resilience brokers will dive into innovative investment models, technologies and tools that can be used to channel capital into developing countries, as well as approaches such as systems-thinking that are crucial if we are to create transformational change through capital.
