Project description

For successfully implementing the 2030 Agenda it is necessary to mobilize an enormous amount of additional private capital and to allocate private capital in sustainable investments. Against this background the project elaborates first innovative approaches to finance sustainable development. This includes the analysis of innovative instruments in the field of green finance such as green bonds. Similarly, local currency bond markets play an important potential role in mobilizing long-term financial resources needed to achieve the 2030 Agenda. In the context of the German G20-Presidency this project supports the BMZ in writing studies and reports for the Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI). Second, the project deals with the reform of the international trade and investment regimes with a focus on the effects of trade and investment agreements on public procurement, services and rules of origins.
