19-20 October 2021
Building upon the positive results of the first edition of the Finance in Common Summit (FiCS), Public Development Banks will convene for a second time to reiterate and reinforce their commitments in support of common actions for climate and sustainable development.
The Summit will be hosted by Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP), the Italian National Promotional Institution and Financial Institution for Development Cooperation, in partnership with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and with the support from all the members of the Finance in Common Coalition. It will be held 19-20 October 2021 in Rome and in digital format, and will gather the whole development bank community, comprising more than 500 PDBs and other key stakeholders (governments, central banks, private sector, civil society, think tanks and academia, etc.).
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.
