Democratizing Capital for Energy and Sustainable Growth Transitions

If COP 27 proved anything, it is that pledges to achieve sustainable development, resilience, and technology solutions will not be met by unfunded pledges at international conferences, but by rational financing. In short, what gets measured gets financed. When developing countries must borrow at 11 to 20 percent (wealthy countries pay about few less, the cost of money constitutes an insurmountable barrier to development, especially to middle- and low-income countries in Asia and Africa. Just as hard-hit countries were given access to concessionary borrowing to meet Covid-related costs, so too must developing economies be offered the creative financing needed to create sustainable solutions in the fields of energy, transport, construction, agriculture, and health care. Experts in the fields of international development and finance will discuss how capital structure matters now more than ever in building a regenerative and inclusive global economy for sustainable stability and growth.
