Supporting Transformative Investments for SDG Achievement in LDCs

Video details


The Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the 2030 Agenda both identify the need for multiple sources of finance to work together effectively and in new combinations.

Yet, the international financial architecture is not designed to directly support small ticket size, higher risk transactions that – nevertheless – will be the key to achieving transformative impact at the local level.

Against this context, it is critical that the LDC5 Conference delivers concrete solutions that make finance work better for the LDCs and to leave no one behind. The objective of this session is therefore to explore the suite of financing and de-risking resources and instruments that catalyze additional resources to help fill financing gaps and support transformative investments in LDCs.
