Strengthening MDBs: the triple agenda

This event will take place in Marrakech, Morocco. A livestream of the event will be featured on this webpage, as well as a recording after the event has concluded.

This event marks the public launch of the reports of the G20 Independent Expert Group (IEG) on strengthening multilateral development banks (MDBs), appointed under the India G20 Presidency. CGD President Masood Ahmed will participate in this panel discussion on the sidelines of the Annual Meetings of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

The IEG recommends a triple agenda to harness the potential of MDBs: (i) adopting a triple mandate of eliminating extreme poverty, boosting shared prosperity and contributing to global public goods; (ii) tripling sustainable lending levels by 2030; and (iii) creating a third funding mechanism which would permit flexible and innovative arrangements for purposefully engaging with investors who are willing to support elements of the MDB agenda. To achieve these objectives, MDBs have to become better, bolder and bigger institutions by undergoing reform in key areas.
