The Center for Global Development, CDC Group, and the Centre for Finance and Development are pleased to invite you to the international conference Blended Development Finance and the New Industrial Policy on November 8-9, 2018 at the Graduate Institute Geneva.
This unique conference is designed to convene both the new industrial policy thinkers, who have studied the history of government intervention, and blended finance practitioners, who are involved in setting up the institutions and procedures that will use official development finance to subsidise private enterprise in developing countries. These two communities too often work in isolation and have much to learn from each other.
The conference will combine scholar presentations with high-level policy discussions. Please see the programme for a list of sessions and speakers, in addition to more details about the conference.
Two sessions will be livestreamed on this page:
Development Finance Institutions at the Crossroads, featuring Nancy Birdsall, Colin Buckley, and Alan Rousso on Thursday, November 8 at 6:15am EST/11:15AM BST/12:15pm CEST.
Lessons from Blended Finance featuring Nancy Lee, Liang Wang, Kathryn Imboden, Shanaz Patel, and Maria Teresa Zappia on Friday, November 9 at 10:00am EST/3:00pm BST/4:00pm CEST.
Please join us for this “first of its kind” conference and feel free to share this invitation with your network and encourage your colleagues to attend or tune in to the livestream. We want to reach as many people who work in private sector development as possible.
