Mobilizing the Private Sector: How MDBs Can Step Up Their Catalytic Role

April 18, 2024 11:00 am

The multilateral development banks (MDBs) are uniquely positioned to help bridge gaps in capital markets to unlock private finance for sustainable development. They have the financial and non-financial tools to help strengthen investment climates and share risk. But current MDB private finance mobilization falls far short of what is needed to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and address global challenges like climate change.

How can the MDBs effectively mobilize private finance at the necessary scale? In this event, CGD President Masood Ahmed will moderate a panel discussion with key public and private leaders to grapple with this question. They will discuss feasible mobilization levels and what must be done to achieve them.
