Transforming societies to meet the SDGs: The role of finance
Tuesday, 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM
August 27, 2019
Far-reaching societal transformations are required to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and finance for water plays a vital role in under-pinning these transformation processes. According to estimates by the World Bank, investments need to triple to reach the water-related SDGs, and traditional approaches will not get us there.
Understanding different financiers’ expectations of social, economic, environmental, and financial returns is a precondition to successfully attracting money from all available sources, whether public, private or blended. A panel of finance experts will evaluate water project pitches, enabling participants to experience financial decision-making and learn about return expectations and risk appetites.
SSFC convenes this session of World Water Week together with CAF- Development Bank of Latin America, Germany’s Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI), and The World Water Council. The session is moderated by SSFC Program Director Aaron Maltais.
