The international community’s responses are currently fragmented, partial and insufficient. We therefore call for a fundamental overhaul of our approach. Together, we need to build a more responsive, fairer and more inclusive international financial system to fight inequalities, finance the climate transition, and bring us closer to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

MIA MOTTLEY, Prime Minister of Barbados

We will take a major step, as we will start by establishing a new consensus. The fight against poverty, the decarbonization of our economy in order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, and the protection of biodiversity, are closely intertwined. We therefore need to agree together on the best means to address these challenges in the poor and emerging countries of the developing world, when it comes to the amount of investment, to comprehensive reform of infrastructure like the World Bank, the IMF, and public and private funds, and how to set a new process in motion.

Why do we need a new global financing pact?

The world is confronted with the most challenging environment in decades. Following the Covid shock, public debt is at record levels in all countries - one-third of all developing countries and two-thirds of low-income countries are at high risk of debt distress. Inflation has surged and monetary tightening creates financial volatility and reduces appetite to risk taking. The multi decade trend towards global poverty reduction has been halted if not reversed, resulting in a global divergence. There is a risk that, through lack of cooperation and insufficient ambitions, the world comes short of meeting the SDG targets and the net zero objective.

2023: a window of opportunity

Yet, 2023 can be transformed into a year of opportunity. The key is to recognize that, in a world that is one – “one Earth, one Family, one Future” –, some global challenges (climate, poverty, health) can only be confronted through stronger and more permanent cooperation. The world community needs to form a minimum base of common vision for the future. At the center of that vision is a belief in shared prosperity between global North and South; the need for concessional finance and a global responsibility to produce public goods benefiting all. While only a part of the agenda, finance is essential.

We should not have to choose between global public goods and fighting poverty

Achieving the dual goals of sustainability and poverty reduction and more generally, providing global public goods will require a significant scaling up of finance. This is especially important for poorer countries that will face upfront large investments in global public goods whose benefits will materialize over time. The urgent need is to strengthen policies and mobilize financing, from all sources in a predictable, adequate, and timely manner to address climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation including significantly increasing support for developing countries.

A platform for action

In the months to come, there is an opportunity to reshape the architecture of development and climate finance for a stronger and more efficient international financial system. The key decisions will have to be taken at the G20 Summit in September and the COP 28 conference. In the meantime, it may be useful to work and seek a basis for consensus. In that spirit, the Summit can be seen as a steppingstone, a focal point for discussion and identification of possible convergences. It will also provide a wide platform for non-states actors – public and private funds, the private sector and civil society – to participate in this discussion, assess key actions towards our development and climate finance objectives, and align in achieving them.

A financial architecture equal to today’s challenges

The overarching objective is to set up an architecture that will be robust enough to deliver more resources, protect them from possible economic or geopolitical shocks, and meet the strongest standards of fairness in the international community, resuming a steady longterm trend towards global poverty reduction. Such an architecture should ensure the longterm sustainability and predictability in climate and public goods finance (and avoid surges followed by abrupt retrenchments), taking into account the diversity of characteristics of different public goods and the differentiated capacities and needs of different countries.

First avenues for action

Preparatory work has started with several groups discussing and considering options. While it is too soon to prefigure any outcome or result, the following possible avenues may be signaled

  • Better integrate climate and development strategies to deliver green, resilient, and inclusive development (including protecting vulnerable countries).
  • Stronger mobilization of concessional and public finance (through greater leverage and innovative sources), together with a clearer vision on how best it should be put to use, at the service of which objectives and according to which time path.
  • Reaffirm and enhance the role of private finance, which will be indispensable to the scaling up. This necessitates to better identify the sources of risk and how they can be compensated or mitigated.

First avenues for action

  • Accelerate the emergence and diffusion of the technologies indispensable to the transition and the production of public goods (including climate and health) through appropriate incentives and policies.
  • Improve the information architecture through which “green” investments and financial flows are defined and earmarked in order to achieve a more efficient allocation of capital.
  • Reform the IFIs, DFIs, and MDBs such that they deliver effectively for everyone, especially to needs of the developing countries.


The Summit will last two days. It will include debate at the highest level between Heads of State and Government, leaders of international organizations, and representatives of civil society, foundations, funds and the private sector.

schedule may be subject to change

Registration is now closed.

    Evolving the model of multilateral development banks to address the 21st century challenges

    Moderation: Bruno Le Maire / Grand auditorium – Palais Brongniart

    Mme Nirmala SITHARAMAN, ministre des Finances de l’Inde
    Mme Janet YELLEN, secrétaire au Trésor des États-Unis d’Amérique

    Evolving the model of multilateral development banks to address the 21st century challenges

    Context and main issues

    In a context of multi-sectoral shocks, with a risk of diverging paths among developing countries, three major changes must be considered : (i) a shift in the vision, in order to articulate the protection of climate and biodiversity with the sustainable development goals in all our development financial institutions, (ii) a shift in scale , by mobilising all our instruments and partners to go further than the first encouraging results of the CAF Review agenda, (iii) a shift in our methods, to make sure that multilateral development banks work as a system, but also hand-in hand with other development instruments, and that climate and environment funds work efficiently.

    Key questions to steer the discussion

    • How to increase the ambition on the optimisation the capital of multilateral development banks? What qualitative level of ambition for the next replenishments and under what conditions should a capital increase be envisaged?
    • How to leverage more private financing for IFIs and better connect these institutions with private funds and philanthropies?
    • How to facilitate access to concessional financing for the countries that need it most? In that regard, how could be evolve the definition of vulnerability?
    • How can we ensure that all the players work together, in an "ecosystem", and improve their cooperation on the ground? How could the functioning and the use of existing capital of vertical funds on climate be improved?
    A new method: green growth partnerships

    M. SANJAYAN, CEO Conservation International

    A new method: green growth partnerships

    Context and main issues

    Addressing the overlapping climate, biodiversity and development challenges requires a new method to deliver on the 2030 Agenda at the global and local level. While financial actors - development banks, financial institutions, international organizations, philanthropic foundations, sovereign funds, pension and investment funds and businesses – may differ in their interests, goals and methods, bringing them together through robust frameworks rooted in country objectives can make a huge difference.

    There are many areas in which ambitious multi-actor partnerships can be useful to scale up efforts such as the just energy transition (JETPs), access to technologies and innovation, and the preservation of biodiversity (country packages for forest, nature and climate). Such partnerships can help mobilise a wide range of international and domestic, public and private financing tools like concessional loans, guarantees, debt swaps, carbon markets, hybrid financing, and investments.

    Governments play a central role in developing multi-stakeholder partnerships. By developing long term strategies with clear and ambitious goals, aligned with the SDGs, the Paris Agreement and the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, and detailed investment plans to support them, governments can mobilise incentives for a more targeted and efficient use of both international and domestic resources. Multi-stakeholder partnerships can help moving from a project by project approach to a wider and more systemic approach where each actor has a clearly defined role to play.

    Drawing lessons from the existing partnerships to ensure optimal use of financial resources, how can we define a better coordinated approach within each country and each region, based on the needs expressed by each country? How can we ensure that these country partnerships address climate change at the right scale and the protection of biodiversity – including forests and ocean ahead of UNOC 25 – at the global level?

    Key questions to steer the discussion

    • What are the lessons learned from existing multi-stakeholder partnerships (such as the JET-P with South Africa, Indonesia or Vietnam)?
    • What are the key principles for successful multi-stakeholder partnerships?
    • What should be the role of international financial institutions in multi-stakeholder partnerships?
    • How can multi-stakeholder partnerships help mobilise more private investments? What are the right instruments to do so?
    • Beyond energy transition, in which priority areas should we deploy multi-stakeholder partnerships? How can such partnerships support the biodiversity and forest agenda?
    • How do we make sure that multi-stakeholder partnerships contribute to developing bankable pipelines of projects? How can these partnerships be complemented by other initiatives / efforts on the front of project preparation capacities strengthening or private sector mobilization (through guarantees and other such tools)?
    • How can carbon markets contribute to support such partnerships in a fair and efficient manner?
    Debt and SDR-channelling: where do we stand and how to go further?

    Moderation: Nadia Calvino (vice-Prémière Ministre espagnole) / Grand auditorium – Palais Brongniart

    M. Kaïs SAÏED, président de la République tunisienne
    M. Mahamat Idriss DEBY ITNO, Président de la République du Tchad

    Debt and SDR-channelling: where do we stand and how to go further?

    Context and main issues

    Development financing is at the nexus of climate, nature and debt. In that regard, multilateral efforts should be accelerated to ensure the debt sustainability. In the particular case of defaulting or about to default countries, progress could be made in coordinating debt restructuring processes in low and middle countries, in particular by committing on timelines in the Common Framework. Implementing climate-resilient tools can be a complementary tool, in particular debt suspension clauses in case of natural disasters, or debt swaps associated with private debt buy backs to reprofile debt and finance conservation projects.

    To complement debt restructuring when appropriate, and to help countries to address challenges such as development, climate and biodiversity, additional concessional funding and IMF lending support are needed. To build mutual trust, it is essential to deliver on past commitments, including on the global ambition to channel USD 100 bn of SDR (or equivalent) from countries with strong external positions to vulnerable countries, as endorsed by the G20. However, this will not be sufficient by itself and should be complemented by efforts to close the subsidy gap for reinforcing concessional financing from the IMF, to use the full potential of the Resilience and Sustainability Trust and to give shape to innovative schemes using SDR channelling through MDBs.

    Key questions to steer the discussion


    • What lessons can be drawn from recent debt restructuring processes both in low-income countries and middle-income countries? What has been done better in the past few months and how Sri Lanka’s ad hoc coordination could be implemented in the future for middle-income countries?
    • Under what conditions are debt swaps associated with buybacks of private debt relevant? What lessons learned from recent cases such as Ecuador’s debt buyback (May 23).
    • SDR

    • Where do we stand regarding SDR channelling? How can we go further?
    • Which options should be explored to address the financing gap of the concessional instruments of the IMF?
    • How can the RST be a levy to increase the cooperation between the IMF and World Bank and to catalyse climate finance in beneficiary countries?
    • What are the additional actions needed to operationalise the AfDB and IADB proposal to channel SDRs to MDBs?
    Mobilizing the private sector for the SDGs: sustainable infrastructure and SME financing

    M. Thomas BUBERL, DG AXA Group

    Mobilizing the private sector for the SDGs: sustainable infrastructure and SME financing


    The sustainable transition requires joint effort from all actors and enhanced investments in developing clean practices and quality infrastructure. Against a backdrop of limited financial resources, better mobilization of all available financial flows in support of sustainable infrastructure projects is a key determinant of success, particularly in emerging and developing countries. What new investment frameworks should be promoted in emerging and developing countries? How to trigger the preparation of a greater number of quality projects by local actors? What risk-sharing and information-sharing mechanisms can be designed that encourage private investment? What changes in the overall architecture can be proposed for better mobilization of public and private financial tools?

    Alongside major critical infrastructure, enhancing financial support to small and medium-sized enterprises in developing markets, is recognized to be of crucial importance for economic and social development. How to promote business opportunities and their financial sustainability? How to mobilize domestic resources, public institutions and private funding? And finally, how can small and medium-sized enterprises grow in size and hence contribute to a diverse and resilient private sector?

    Innovating with instruments and financing to address new vulnerabilities

    Moderation: Chrysoula Zacharopoulou et Mia Mottley (Première Ministre de la Barbade) / Grand auditorium – Palais Brongniart

    M. Nana Addo AKUFO-ADDO, président de la République du Ghana
    M. Muhammad Shehbaz SHARIF, premier ministre de la République islamique du Pakistan

    Innovating with instruments and financing to address new vulnerabilities

    Context and main issues

    The increasing frequency and depth of shocks, such as climatic events and pandemics, requires a broad approach to poverty reduction, including building the resilience of vulnerable populations. This involves embedding vulnerability as a key factor to access financing, both for emergency liquidity response and longer-term investments in resilience, such as climate mitigation and adaptation as well as pandemic prevention.

    Developing and emerging countries are increasingly likely to mobilise a larger share of their fiscal space in order to accelerate the implementation of national resilience plans. We will thus need innovative sources of financing to match the ever-increasing scale of needs. This is particularly true for areas that do not spontaneously generate revenue streams, such as the response to loss and damage. Achieving this goal implies identifying the right financing sources, leveraging the flows from globalization, and rethinking the allocation schemes.

    Several innovative mechanisms open promising avenues that could be further explored, such as carbon credit markets, insurance mechanisms, debt instrument more responsive to unpredictable events, additional taxation schemes and contributions levied on the fruits of globalization, in accordance with the polluter pays principle. However, these remain too marginal despite considerable potential and could be reinforced and deployed widely.

    Key questions to steer the discussion

    • How can we better take into account vulnerability criteria in allocation mechanisms for concessional funding (level of concessionnality, maturity…)?
    • How can effective global safety nets be developed to mitigate the impact of climate catastrophes and other unpredictable events? For instance:
      • Could we widely deploy insurance mechanisms, with a fair and efficient economic model?
      • Could more widespread adoption of Climate Resilient Debt Clauses (incl. zero-cost) and other automatic liquidity provision make the financial system and vulnerable countries more able to absorb shocks?
    • How can debt swaps help mobilise additional resources to invest in resilience without weighing on a country’s debt? How could we scale up the mechanism, and in which countries could we deploy it in priority?
    • How could Paris-consistent, compliance carbon credit markets be expanded across countries? How could the voluntary or cross-border carbon markets be better leveraged and expanded to reduce emissions and generate additional financing to mitigate the impacts of climate change on a fair basis?
    • What are promising options for new cross-border revenue streams to accelerate decarbonisation (levy on carbon emissions by the shipping industry or on the fossil fuel sector)? How could these help contribute to the UNFCCC’s new funding arrangements, including a fund, for assisting developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, in responding to loss and damage?
    Ensuring more reliable, comparable information and data

    Moderation: Sylvie Goulard et Mark Carney (GFANZ) / Grand auditorium – Palais Brongniart

    M. Bola Ahmed TINUBU (Président du Nigéria)
    M. David CRAIG, TNFD
    M. Mark CARNEY (GFANZ)

    Mme Mary SCHAPIRO, Bloomberg
    Mme Sabine MAUDERER, vice-présidente de Network for Greening the Financial System
    Mme Catherine MCKENNA, envoyée spéciale UN

    Ensuring more reliable, comparable information and data

    All participants share the view that sound and reliable data on companies and financial institutions are key to unlocking the trillions of dollars needed to:

    • reduce global emissions by half by 2030 and meet the goal of net zero emissions by 2050
    • and halt and reverse nature loss by 2030.

    They recognize the urgent need for a global approach allowing better allocation of capital, in particular towards the countries most in need of sustainable development.

    They consider that their works on corporate reporting, data availability and scenarios, on climate and nature, are deeply interconnected and constitute indispensable building blocks of the New Global Financing Pact, as well as a key driver for transition.

    They are committed to work further together in seeking synergies and avoiding silos, in particular:

    • the Net Zero Data Public Utility (NZDPU) initiative, launched by President Macron and Michael Bloomberg, will provide at COP 28 elements to launch an open, free and centralized data repository that will allow stakeholders to easily access key climate transition-related data, commitments and progresses of business and financial institutions towards these commitments. It will enable action and encourage accountability. This repository will hugely benefit from all efforts made to improve the quality and comparability of data.
    • the Task Force on Nature-related Disclosure (TNFD) will publish in September 2023 a framework for nature-related risk management and disclosure, providing strong alignment for the markets with climate reporting based on the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Disclosure (TCFD), paving the way for future nature and biodiversity standards. To complement the work of NZDPU on climate, TNFD (working with a global network of partners from the nature and science world) is also scoping approaches for a nature-related data utility to improve the availability, consistency and accessibility of state-of-nature data for the benefit of governments, business finance and civil society actors...
    • The Network of central banks and supervisors for Greening the financial System (NGFS) continues to guide on all aspects of climate- and environment-related finance. It is developing and extending its climate scenarios, including short-term scenarios, which have become an important tool for the financial sector. The NGFS is also working towards its first nature-related scenarios, which will enable the financial sector to evaluate the impact of and dependencies on nature. Furthermore, the NGFS facilitates capacity building, contributes to scaling up capital for climate adaptation and mitigation through its forthcoming handbook on blended finance, and leads the considerations of international bodies on transition plans;
    • the International Sustainability Standard Board (ISSB) will publish in June 2023 its first standards as part of the global baseline of sustainability disclosures for the capital markets; these standards are indispensable to leverage efforts from voluntary net-zero initiatives and TCFD. According to the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN), special consideration should be given by ISSB towards the needs of developing and emerging economies to ensure successful jurisdictional adoption of the standards. The support should cut across a wide range of areas such as: capacity building, advocacy, special incentives for early adopters, policy advice and technical assistance.
    • The report of the UN High level expert group on Net Zero emissions commitments of non-state entities is clear that accessible, high quality and consistent data is critical for both accountability of transition plans, as well as for move from voluntary to binding net-zero frameworks and standards.
    • At COP 27, GFANZ provided a framework for net zero transition planning that is being used by leading financial institutions. It will further encourage disclosure of transition plans and data from financing firms and corporates aligned to the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate and the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework.

    This comprehensive approach constitutes a common, global road-map towards COP 28 and beyond. It is complementary to the role the G 20 can play in establishing clear, globally relevant guardrails for transition finance.

    Alongside the round tables some 30 events will also be held in hybrid formats, focusing on the main Sustainable Development Goals.

    Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that an additional US$134 billion a year was needed to be spent in low- and low-and-middle-income countries to reach the health-related Sustainable Development Goals, an amount predicted to rise to US$371 billion by 2030. With the disruption to health services provoked by the pandemic, this gap grew even larger - with many countries already facing the pressure of indebtedness, conflict, and climate change. At the core of the much welcome debate around a New Global Financing Pact lies the challenge of providing health and wellbeing for all. But to do that, the world urgently needs a more coordinated financing approach, to bridge the gap between health systems investment needs and the challenge of limited domestic funding in Low Income Countries (LICs) and many Middle Income Countries (MICs). Establishing effective financing arrangements is critical for the development of high-impact, equitable, people-centered primary health care services. This will be the topic of the High-level roundtable on innovative finance to accelerate investment in Primary Health Care and health systems resilience. This side event will gather the perspectives of regional partners, heads of governments and policymakers, alongside the leaders some of the world’s Multilateral Banks, to renew their commitment to the sector and to launch a coordinated approach to financing for health in support of low- and low-middle income countries. To turn this commitment into action, the African Development Bank, the European Investment Bank and the Islamic Development Bank are launching a new Health Impact Investment Platform with the World Health Organization. Through the Platform, the founding partners aim to make available financing for Primary Health Care and health systems resilience investments in LMICs.

    António GUTERRES

    António Guterres, le neuvième Secrétaire général de l'Organisation des Nations Unies, a pris ses fonctions le 1er janvier 2017.

    Ayant été témoin de la souffrance des êtres humains les plus vulnérables de la planète, des camps de réfugiés aux zones de guerre, le Secrétaire général est résolu à mettre la dignité humaine au cœur de son action. Dans une période de défis mondiaux sans précédent, il s'est appuyé sur son engagement envers la Charte des Nations Unies pour mobiliser le monde et lancer des actions pour répondre à la pandémie de COVID-19, faire face à l'urgence climatique, faire progresser l'égalité des sexes et réaliser des réformes ambitieuses au XXIe siècle pour renforcer les efforts cruciaux entrepris par l'Organisation pour assurer la paix, le développement durable, les droits de l'homme et l'aide humanitaire.

    Avant sa nomination, M. Guterres a été Haut-Commissaire des Nations Unies pour les réfugiés de juin 2005 à décembre 2015. Son mandat à la tête de l'un des principaux organismes humanitaires du monde a été marqué par les vagues de déplacement sans précédent de ces dernières décennies. Les conflits en Syrie et en Iraq et les crises qui secouent le Soudan du Sud, la République centrafricaine et le Yémen ont obligé le HCR à multiplier ses activités alors que le nombre de déplacés ayant fui les conflits ou les persécutions passait de 38 millions en 2005 à plus de 60 millions en 2015.

    Avant de travailler au HCR, M. Guterres a passé plus d'une vingtaine d'années au service de l'État et dans la fonction publique. Il a été Premier Ministre du Portugal de 1995 à 2002, période au cours de laquelle il a joué un rôle de premier plan dans l'action internationale engagée pour mettre fin à la crise du Timor Leste.

    Au début de l'année 2000, en sa qualité de Président du Conseil européen, il a dirigé la procédure d'adoption de la Stratégie de Lisbonne pour la croissance et l'emploi et coprésidé le premier sommet Union européenne-Afrique. De 1991 à 2002, il a été membre du Conseil d'État portugais.

    En 1976, M. Guterres a été élu au Parlement portugais, où il a siégé pendant 17 ans. Au cours de cette période, il a présidé la Commission parlementaire de l'économie, des finances et de la planification, puis la Commission parlementaire de l'administration territoriale, des municipalités et de l'environnement. Il a également été chef du groupe parlementaire de son parti.

    De 1981 à 1983, M. Guterres a été membre de l'Assemblée parlementaire du Conseil de l'Europe, où il a présidé la Commission des migrations, des réfugiés et de la démographie.

    Pendant de nombreuses années, M. Guterres a été un membre actif de l'Internationale socialiste, une alliance mondiale de partis politiques sociodémocrates. Il en a été le vice-président de 1992 à 1999, période à laquelle il a coprésidé le Comité Afrique et, plus tard, le Comité Développement. De 1999 à mi-2005, il a présidé l'Internationale socialiste. Il a en outre fondé le Conseil portugais pour les réfugiés et l'Association de défense des consommateurs portugais DECO et présidé, au début des années 70, le Centro de Acção Social Universitário, une association mettant en place des projets de développement social dans les quartiers pauvres de Lisbonne.

    M. Guterres est membre du Club de Madrid, une alliance démocratique réunissant d'anciens chefs d'État et de gouvernement du monde entier.

    M. Guterres est né à Lisbonne en 1949. Il est titulaire d'un diplôme d'ingénieur de l'Instituto Superior Técnico. Il parle couramment le portugais, l'anglais, le français et l'espagnol. Il est marié à Catarina de Almeida Vaz Pinto et a deux enfants, un beau-fils et trois petits-enfants.

    L'Assemblée générale des Nations Unies adopte par acclamation le 13 octobre 2016 une résolution nommant António Guterres du Portugal au poste de Secrétaire général, pour un mandant de cinq ans, à compter du 1er janvier 2017.

    Vanessa NAKATE

    Climate activist Vanessa Nakate was appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 2022. Vanessa began advocating for climate justice in 2019 with a protest on the streets of Kampala, Uganda, inspired by Greta Thunberg. She continued to protest every week, becoming a well-known face in a global movement of young people “striking” for the climate. In 2020, Vanessa rose to further prominence when she was cropped out of a news photo in which she appeared alongside Thunberg and other white climate activists. Her response that the news outlet “didn’t just erase a photo, you erased a continent” made international headlines. Vanessa has since used her platform to advocate for climate justice for every community, especially those most affected by the impacts of climate change. She founded Rise Up Movement to elevate the voices of African climate activists, as well as a project to install solar panels in rural Ugandan schools. Vanessa is also the author of A Bigger Picture, a manifesto on inclusive climate action. In her first trip with UNICEF, Vanessa travelled to Kenya to see firsthand the impacts of water and food insecurity caused by the worst drought in the Horn of Africa in 40 years. There, she met with communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis, including mothers and babies receiving life-saving treatment for severe acute malnutrition and families benefiting from solar-powered water supply systems. Vanessa has addressed world leaders at multiple climate summits and appeared on the cover of TIME magazine in 2021.

    Why is a summit on a New Global Financing Pact being organised?

    80 years after Bretton Woods, an overhaul of the international financial system is overdue. On 22 and 23 June, President Emmanuel Macron will convene heads of state and government, representatives of financial institutions, and representatives of the private sector and civil society in Paris to lay the foundation for a new system that will meet our shared challenges: fighting inequality, climate change and protecting biodiversity.

    Where will the Summit be held ?

    The Summit will be held at the Palais Brongniart, at Unesco and at the OCDE, in Paris

    Throughout its history, France has acted as an honest international broker and helped unlock some of the most intractable issues – from closing the HIV/AIDS funding gap to enhancing liquidity access for middle-income countries in Africa. Now, seven years after the landmark Paris Agreement, world leaders will once again gather to conceive a fairer, more sustainable future for our planet.

    Which countries will participate in the Summit ?

    This is an inclusive, multi-stakeholder summit. Heads of State from across the Global North and South have been invited, along with the leaders of multilateral development banks, international organisations, the private sector and international NGOs.

    Attendees will be announced shortly.

    What is on the agenda ?

    Together we will shape a new financing ‘toolbox’ that will be rolled out through six high-level round-tables and 40 parallel events. The Summit will provide the opportunity to examine interactions between multilateral development bank reform, mobilisation of private capital, climate finance, green infrastructure and solutions related to debt.

    What does the Summit aim to achieve ?

    Ahead of the many international events that will mark the end of 2023 and the years to follow, the Summit for New Global Financing Pact will establish the principles for future reforms and pave the way towards a more balanced financial partnership between the North and South. It will set the stage for new agreements to relieve debt distress. It will also enable more countries to access the financing they need to invest in sustainable development, to better protect nature and cut emissions, as well as help protect populations from climate change wherever most needed.

    To rebuild credibility in the international system, we need a new pact that offers a level playing field, shares the burden of climate change, and builds prosperity and security for every country. The New Global Financing Pact will help define the principles and steps needed to reform the financial system and to combat the high levels of debt that tie governments’ hands when it comes to implement ambitious climate action to reduce the climate, economic and technological gaps that threaten to divide up our world.
