Capital As A Force For Good
7th World Investment Forum, Untied Nations Conference On Trade And Development

Without immediate and fundamental changes, the world will fail to fund the SDGs and finance the transition to a sustainable, resilient, and inclusive future. Based on the latest report from the Force for Good Initiative (F4G), the current funding shortfall to achieve the SDGs is c.10% of annual global GDP for the next decade and this amount is not something governments nor the private sector can deploy on their own. However, financial institutions as the custodians of over 85% of the world's gross liquid assets have a critical role to play in the mobilization of other key stakeholders and in the development and execution of solutions

The Force for Good Initiative has hosted a series of high impact sessions at UNCTAD’s World Investment Forum in support of the UN Secretary General's strategy and roadmap for sustainable development to 2030, exploring the the challenges facing the world, the current efforts of finance industry leaders to address these, and the big ideas for the world to transition to a more sustainable and inclusive future.
