Financing for nutrition: Leveraging the pivotal role of Public Development Banks

18:00 - 19:00 (JST) | 10:00-11:00 (CET)

Side event for the Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit

Recent estimates suggest that transforming food systems to deliver healthy people, a healthy planet, and a healthy economy will require an extra US$300 – US$350 billion per year over the next decade. Meeting these needs requires scaling up and enhanced coordination between all sources of finance to work together in alignment with the 2030 Agenda and the objectives of the Paris Agreement.

With their development mandate and proximity to public policy and governance institutions, Public Development Banks (PDBs) have a particular responsibility to catalyse a change of course across local and global financial ecosystems.

This includes mobilizing sustainable and green finance, structuring blended solutions and public-private financing schemes, developing and modelling the use of metrics and methodologies, adopting digital solutions, and delivering a suite of financial services and products for a diverse range of actors in food systems, especially as small-scale producers, women and youth.

This event will present the PDB coalition proposed by IFAD, and focus on PDBs’ catalytic and pivotal role in food and nutrition. The PDB initiative focuses on improving PDBs’ capacity to contribute to the transformation of sustainable food systems that can provide good and adequate nutrition to everyone.
