The Ad Hoc Expert Group Meeting on the theme “Rethinking the Role of National Development Banks” took place at UN Headquarters in New York on 1-2 December 2005, in Conference Room 4.
The main purpose of this meeting was to seek intellectual inputs from a representative group of experts acting in their personal capacity for the launch, in 2006, of a research project, entitled “Multi-stakeholder Consultations on Rethinking the Role of National Development Banks”.
To this end, participating experts were invited to engage in an interactive discussion, with a view to identifying and exploring key substantive issues to be addressed during the consultation process, including relevant national and regional experiences, as well as some organizational and logistical aspects.
As part of the broader focus on the implementation of the Monterrey Consensus on Financing for Development, this project is expected to produce a publication on the role of national development banks as a renewed tool of development finance. In addition, the main findings and recommendations will be reported to the General Assembly.
