Vision to Impact: Public Development Banks in Action

April 18, 2024
Washington D.C.

This event focused on the catalytic role that public development banks play in accelerating development outcomes, with the potential to crowd in private capital and address market failures in transformative ways, emphasizing green finance. The speakers shared their experiences in addressing the financing gap for priority development challenges – climate, infrastructure, and Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises finance.

The event brought in voices from Finance in Common, a coalition of 530 public development banks from 154 economies, managing $23 trillion in assets and $2.5 trillion in annual investments.
