OECD-FERDI Webinar: The role of Multilateral Organisations in Climate Finance

November 29, 2022, En ligne

Presentation and discussion of the key messages of the 2022 OECD Multilateral Development Finance Report.

The OECD is hosting a series of live virtual talks on multilateral development finance from 28 November - 8 December 2022. Following the launch of the Multilateral Development Finance Report on 28 November, experts from academia, think tanks and development agencies from across the world will share their views and insights.

In this framework, FERDI organized in partnership with the OECD,
a discussion on the Role of Multilateral Organisations in Climate Finance.

This debate was an opportunity for the OECD to present its 2022 report on multilateral development financing, which will be published the day before. It presents the complexity of the multilateral development system, its recent evolutions and the challenges it faces, in particular the financing of the fight against climate change for which almost half of the funds come from multilateral actors. Although the recently concluded COP27 was only a timid step in mobilizing the necessary funds, the debates that took place confirmed the need to rethink the role of multilateral development finance. 

The report's recommendations were presented by the OECD, then discussed and confronted with the experienced viewpoint of high-level personalities. The discussion was moderated by Patrick Guillaumont.


Presentation of the report's recommendations:

  • Olivier Cattaneo (Head of Unit, Policy Analysis and Strategy, Development Co-operation Directorate, OECD)
  • Abdoulaye Fabregas (Economist at Policy Analysis and Strategy Unit, OECD)


  • Dr. Al-Hamndou Dorsouma (Director, Climate Change and Green Growth Department at African Development Bank)
  • Bruno Cabrillac (Deputy Director General of Economics and International Relations, Banque de France)


  • Patrick Guillaumont (President of FERDI)
