2020 Summit

Building Resilience for People and Planet  

The first edition of the Finance in Common Summit (9-12 November 2020) underscored the crucial role of Public Development Banks (PDBs) in reconciling short-term countercyclical responses with sustainable recovery measures that will have a long-term impact on the planet and societies.

By reconciling the entire finance community in support of common action for climate and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Finance in Common Summit was a key milestone on the way to the crucial events of 2021, notably the COP26, the COP15 and the Generation Equality Forum.

 

 

Joint Declaration 

The first deliverable of the Finance in Common Summit is a joint declaration of all Public Development Banks stating their willingness to contribute to the recovery and align with sustainable finance principles.

Public Development Banks in Action

The PDBs in Action platform seeks to promote projects and programs led by PDBs in their respective jurisdictions, whether international, regional or national, that illustrate the critical role of PDBs in addressing urgent issues, sustainable recovery, and climate action, and in achieving positive outcomes for people and planet.

The projects may also be supported (and in some cases, led) by other partners, e.g. humanitarian or philanthropic organizations, NGOs, universities, or Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), each bringing a comparative advantage on the operational schemes.

30 projects are showcased during the Finance in Common Summit.
