March 17, 2016, Paris

This workshop is the start of the "Transformative Investment for Sustainable Development" project lead by IDDRI with FERDI and with the support of the Gates Foundation.

The project aims to reflect on the major orientations of the financing for sustainable development and to discuss past or current initiatives that may help to achieve the development agenda. Its objective is to invite a group of experts to discuss in a round table, 4 case studies that could inform these questions: infrastructures, cities, health and agriculture. 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.
