Add to Calendar September 19 1:00 pm September 19 3:30 pm America/New_York GLOBAL PUBLIC INVESTMENT(GPI)- Transforming International Cooperation to Finance Common Needs

The Ford Foundation and Equal International are delighted to co-host this event in partnership with the African Center for Economic Transformation, CIVICUS, Partners in Health, Joep Lange Institute and Open Society Foundations

You are invited to join this special event as we welcome a distinguished panel, including UN Delegations and civil society leaders, to discuss how we can apply the principles of Global Public Investment (GPI) to the challenges of our time, including pandemics, climate change and inequality, to secure a more equitable and effective mode of multilateral cooperation to achieve the global development goals of the 2030 Agenda and beyond.

GPI has grown out of decades of critical debate on the topics of development finance and multilateral cooperation. GPI represents the most coherent financing and governance arrangement, and our best bet, for securing the Sustainable Development Goals and other critical Global Public Goods.

GPI is a co-created movement with leadership from every region of the world. It is a movement for evolving beyond aid and leveraging significantly increased international public finance to meet the common needs we all care about through the principles of “All contribute, All benefit, and All decide.”

This discussion builds on the success of the Expert Working Group on GPI (recommendations report here), a global consultation, and mass civil society mobilization to embed GPI principles in the World Bank’s new Financial Intermediary Fund (FIF) for Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness and Response. We are delighted to host this discussion on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, to engage Delegates in the next phase of cocreating GPI as a necessary alternative to the existing inequitable and ineffective multilateral cooperation model based upon the “Donor-Recipient” binary.

“Current systems for financing global public goods are unable to meet the challenges of pandemics, climate change and instability. Global Public Investment is part of the solution.” Jayati Ghosh, Professor of Economics, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, USA

“The Global Public Investment approach is our best bet for modernising international public finance for the 21st century.” Rt Hon Helen Clark, Former Prime Minister of New Zealand.
