-------------- The Transformative Investment for Sustainable Development Project (TISD)
The Transformative Investment for Sustainable Development Project (TISD) brings together key development actors - including aid and development agencies, financial intermediaries and regulators, commercial banks and think tanks - to contribute to the French, European and global conversation on development financing around particular key sectors.
It seeks to encourage new ways of thinking on the multiple challenges and opportunities facing the development community, including the global debate on the 2030 Development Agenda and related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The project aims at contributing to the elaboration of innovative partnerships and initiatives for financing and implementing the 2030 transformative objectives.
IDDRI and FERDI are collaborating on this project in the Initiative for Development and Global Governance Initiative (IDGM) framework. The themes selected by FERDI and IDDRI are the financing of health (Ferdi), financing of infrastructure, cities and agriculture ( IDDRI). Each theme is the subject of a case study published in 2017.
