PDBs in Action: Progress Report from the First Year of Life of the Finance in Common Coalition


A progress report of the Finance in Common initiative, referring to the commitments made in the ambitious Joint Declaration signed in November 2020. All of the 14 thematic coalitions of PDBs progressed on their respective roadmaps. On social investment and health in particular, the coalition continued to promote the cross-benefits that social investments provide in strengthening economic, human and planetary resilience, and prepared to launch a survey to better understand PDBs’ social investment practices, leverage the private sector, and showcase replicable experience. The Water Finance Coalition published in Rome a study that analyzes the involvement of PDBs, in particular national ones, in the water and sanitation sector and provides policy recommendations.
