The high-level event is part of the Financing for Development in the Era of COVID-19 and Beyond initiative launched by the UN Secretary-General and the Prime Ministers of Canada and Jamaica in May 2020. The objective is to articulate a coordinated and comprehensive multilateral response to the urgent ‘financing for development’ crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

World leaders will review recommendations to accelerate the global response to the significant economic and human impacts of COVID-19, and advance concrete solutions for financing to address the development emergency. In order to achieve the 2030 Agenda and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, leaders need to mobilize the financial resources and review the global financial architecture to deliver the global standards and align with the SDGs, while strengthening the resilience and sustainability of countries over the medium to long term.

IISD, through its Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB) Meeting Coverage, will produce digital coverage from this event. Kindly return to this page on Tuesday, 29 September 2020, for more information.
