Towards a new economic architecture that works for the people and planet
The Finance in Common Summit is being held at a time when the humanitarian and economic crisis triggered by the pandemic is threatening the well-being of billions of people and risks derailing the global efforts to achieve the SDGs and respond to the expanding climate emergency. We urgently need systemic solutions to the broken global economic architecture to ensure the necessary fiscal and policy space for a decolonial, feminist and just transition for people and planet. We need to ensure the democratization of global economic governance, recognizing the right of every country to be at the decision-making table, and not only those concentrating power or resources.
This event will focus on providing key systemic global economic solutions urgently needed, including a critical assessment of the role of public development banks, while abiding by the human rights framework, as well as ensuring gender equality and environmental integrity.
This session was organised by the civil society group for Financing for Development (CS FfD).
