This webinar session will discuss the relevance of the High-Level Panel on Global Sustainability (GSP) report and recommendations to the work of international financial institutions (IFIs) such as the World Bank. The webinar will address the following three questions:
- How can IFIs step up their efforts to promote sustainable development in a comprehensive way, and how should they monitor and report on the impact of their sustainable development policies? (see GSP recommendations 33 and 46)
- How can enabling frameworks be created to incentivize substantial financing and sustainable choices from the private sector, including through the creation of partnerships, risk mitigation, etc? (see recommendations 34 to 38)
- How can progress and growth be measured more comprehensively beyond GDP? (see recommendation 39)
