Public Development Banks tackling global challenges - Perspectives from EDFI members

09.11.2020

 

In the context of the Finance in Common Summit, Private Sector & Development magazine (PS&D), an initiative of Proparco, is launching a special edition in partnership with EDFI, the Association of European Development Finance Institutions.

In this special edition of the magazine, EDFI members are sharing their perspectives and exploring ways to increase their cooperation with other public development banks and financial institutions. They examine a number of global development challenges and highlight the crucial role European development finance institutions can play in developing countries.

  • What can public development banks and DFIs do to support the private sector in developing countries and reinforce the impacts on gender equality, decent jobs and climate?
  • How can European DFIs achieve impact on key Sustainable Development Goals?
  • What responses are provided to help SMEs overcome the Covid-19 crisis?
  • How can DFIs and partners help improve the business environment for the private sector in fragile and conflict-affected countries?
