Facilitating Capital Flows into SDG Related Projects And the Role of IPAs In A Post COVID-19 Era

As foreign direct investment (FDI) is an essential element in countries’ efforts to stimulate and enhance economic development, negative FDI trends in recent years and the current COVID-19 pandemic are a global concern but especially for the developing world and transition economies due to their need of capital to stimulate industrialization.

In this light, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is a challenge and opportunity. To achieve the SDGs global efforts to facilitate capital flows into SDG-oriented projects are required, at the same time this opens a chance for investment promotion agencies (IPAs) to play an essential role in facilitating these investments. To realize this, IPAs need to develop additional capacities, from developing a pipeline of investor-ready SDG projects, to the ability to attract and benefit effectively from investment in SDG-related sectors and creating or accessing new markets, technology, products, services and business model innovation that contribute to the SDGs.

This webinar will discuss:

  • The existing best practices of investment promotion agencies (IPAs)
  • The impact of the current crisis on IPAs
  • Further opportunities to enhance the role of IPAs in attracting impact FDI
  • How to achieve the agenda 2030 in a post-COVID era
