Devex Invested: Future of Development Finance

At this critical juncture, complex challenges threaten the global economy, compromising the ability to invest in everything from global health to economic development, especially in the world’s lowest income countries. Pandemic recovery efforts, rising food insecurity, debt and inflation are all throwing public financial commitments into question. Meanwhile funding gaps persist on nearly all fronts — from climate change to pandemic preparedness to humanitarian aid. Impact investors, development finance institutions and ESG trends are making their mark, but questions remain about transparency, impact and measurement.

Pollination Executive Director Deniz Harut joined a panel discussion earlier this week to explore the role of the private sector in climate adaptation finance alongside Annalisa Prizzon, senior research fellow in the Development and Public Finance Programme at ODI; Cinzia Losenno, lead climate adaptation expert, European Investment Bank; and Ranil Dissanayake, policy fellow, Center for Global Development.
