ODI Bites: financing the Global Goals post-Covid-19


Sir Suma Chakrabarti @SumaChakrabarti – incoming Chair of ODI's Board and former President of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)

Five years on from the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, we are failing to deliver on financing to meet the Global Goals. The crisis brought by the pandemic has magnified many, already existing challenges. Ahead of the 'Meeting of the Ministers of Finance', in relation to the 'Financing for Development in the Era of Covid-19 and Beyond Initiative', we explore what options and solutions in the financing for development toolbox we have to make the SDGs a reality; to fully implement the Addis Ababa Action Agenda post-Covid-19. 

ODI Bites is our new series set on giving you big ideas, easy to digest. We launch a series of online conversations with leading ODI experts, exploring dynamic new research, thought leadership, and responding to global challenges.
