What is the PF4SD Week?
The Private Finance for Sustainable Development (PF4SD) Week is an annual OECD event that brings together relevant stakeholders from the public and private sector to discuss new approaches in using private finance to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The “impact imperative” will be the main theme of the 2019 edition.
The “impact imperative”- why this topic?
Achieving the SDGs will require us to put impact at the heart of development finance initiatives. This implies better measuring and monitoring of the end-results and thus impact of Blended Finance, Green Finance, and Social Impact Investment, and the effectiveness of private sector engagement through development co-operation.
About the PF4SD Week – how does it work?
The Week is organised by the OECD’s Development Co-operation Directorate in collaboration with the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC). It will begin with a series of workshops and seminar sessions (15-17 January 2019), a Specialised Policy Dialogue on Effective Private Sector Engagement (16-17 January 2019) and culminate in a high-level Conference (17-18 January 2019).
ECDPM co-organises a session on ‘Convergence – OECD knowledge exchange on blended finance’. San Bilal will be chairing the session as well as participating in ‘Guidance on the OECD DAC blended finance principles: A closer look at the local context’ and ‘The Tri Hita Karana roadmap for blended finance’.
