To help LDCs march towards graduation with inclusion, we must change the status quo. We need to be experimenting more, creating demonstration effects, taking risks, and getting all stakeholders – public and private – to make finance work for those being left behind. We cannot accept as some iron law of nature that certain countries or populations or market segments are destined to lack the tools and resource options they need to build a better future.
The resources entrusted to us help us get more and better resources flowing to where they are needed most. As the clock ticks down to 2030, getting the finance piece of the equation right is essential for LDCs to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We thank all our partners for investing in us, for learning with us, and for working with us to make that happen.
