A look back at the Eurodad conference 2022
#EurodadIC22 #EIBGlobal #ClimateFinance #WorldBank #IFC
After two years of meeting online and three since we last met in person as a network, we came together in Brussels last week for our 2022 conference “Reboot the system: Defining joint strategies for economic justice”. Over the course of two full days of panel discussions and workshops, our members, allies, partners and like-minded academics analysed and strategised ways to bring about much-needed change to achieve economic justice for all.

With the creation of its new ‘EIB Global’ development branch in 2022, the European Investment Bank is planning to step up its development role in support of EU development policies despite serious problems and shortcomings in the past. This position paper, signed by Eurodad, seeks to inform decision-makers at the EIB, as well as its shareholders and the EU institutions, of the key principles and demands formulated by civil society to guide the future operations of EIB Global.

Civil society groups applaud IFC’s decision to stop investing in fee-charging private schools, and call on other investors to follow its lead
The decision by the IFC to not resume investments in fee-charging private schools reinforces the work done by civil society organisations highlighting the negative impact of for-profit schools.
The COP is an opportunity to ensure that governments scale up efforts to achieve gender-responsive and equitable climate finance. Therefore it is important to know how to effectively advocate within this space. This toolkit has been designed for those who are new to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) processes.
by Debt Justice
New figures released by anti-poverty campaigners Debt Justice show that countries in debt crisis are expected to spend less in 2023 than in 2019, despite the urgent need for public expenditure in response to surging food and fuel prices.
by CNCD 11.11.11
This article, published by CNCD 11.11.11 argues that each state must invest massively in a low-carbon economy and robust adaptation measures to counter global warming. These investments are not only a matter of survival for billions of people but can also enable longer-term economic prosperity. However, debt is a major obstacle to these goals.
