The Center for Earth Ethics will participate in the Finance in Common Summit, November 11-12, 2020 hosted by the Paris Peace Forum.
Building Resilience for People and Planet
The Finance in Common Summit will stress the crucial role of Public Development Banks (PDBs) in reconciling short-term countercyclical responses with sustainable recovery measures that will have a long-term impact on the planet and societies.
By reconciling the entire finance community in support of common action for climate and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Finance in Common Summit will be a key milestone on the way to the crucial events of 2021, notably the COP26, the COP15 and the Generation Equality Forum.
Why Finance in Common?
In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent global socio-economic crisis, the Finance in Common Summit will stress the crucial role of Public Development Banks (PDBs) in reconciling short-term countercyclical responses to the crisis with sustainable recovery measures that will have a long-term impact on the planet and societies. The Finance in Common Summit is an opportunity to:
- gather for the first time the world’s 450 PDBs and discuss their role, their ambition, their challenges and opportunities;
- bring together the financial community at large to design a financial system whereby Public Development banks would have the ability to reorient and leverage all financial flows in the direction of climate and the SDGs; and
- contribute to supporting and reinventing multilateralism by promoting new forms of cooperation.
The Finance in Common Summit will gather the whole Public Development Bank community along with other key stakeholders, such as Heads of State, governments, supervisors, and representatives from the private sector, civil society, think tanks and academia. By rallying and challenging a new and significant global community with enhanced capacity of action, and by promoting sustained collective action, the Finance in Common Summit seeks to contribute substantially to the success of the UNSG’s “Decade of Action”.
