Meeting Needs of Developing Countries: The Role of Innovative Financing

April 15, 2011 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Print Friendly

Around the world, entities ranging from governments to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to the private sector have been giving more serious consideration than ever before to alternative financing mechanisms for development, climate change, education and other needs. These alternatives range from for-profit initiatives undertaken by NGOs to those with more global implications such as the financial transaction tax. Innovative financing mechanisms will be on the agenda at the November 2011 G20 Summit in Cannes, France. Please join us for a discussion that will focus on the wealth of initiatives underway and what you should know about them.
