Private investment in areas critical for implementation of the SDGs has to date been vastly insufficient. The situation has worsened due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in a drop of almost 50 per cent in foreign direct investment in the first half of 2020.

Identifying solutions to scale up private investment in a challenging global context will be critical. The SDG Investment Fair was established to support direct informal interaction among representatives of governments of developing countries, the private sector and financial intermediaries with a view of accelerating the mobilization of investment for the SDGs.

The 2021 Fair will feature:

  • Direct interaction between countries and investors
  • Discussion of critical policies and regulations that shape an attractive environment for SDG investment;
  • Representatives of the Global Investors for Sustainable Development (GISD) Alliance discussing its work and deliverables.

The SDG Investment Fair will be held virtually from 13-14 April. To register, please click here or visit
