Delivering development finance to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – Making development finance contribute to environmentally sound industrialization

The seventh session of the Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Financing for Development will consider how the financing of an environmentally sound industrialization strategy, which integrates development and climate challenges, can be supported by the full range of measures at the international, regional and national levels envisaged in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.

Guiding questions:

  • What policies, initiatives and instruments (domestic, regional and international) can be considered to promote and facilitate inclusive and sustainable industrial development and climate transition in developing countries?

  • What best practices can be identified for supporting sustainable business models and their related challenges?

  • How can international cooperation support structural transformation and aid countries to identify and leverage finance that contributes to the 2030 Agenda and Paris Agreement objectives?

Experts are encouraged to prepare and submit to the meeting brief papers (5–12 pages) related to one or more of the issues.

These papers will be made available at the meeting in the form and language in which they are received.
