Achieving the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires the World Bank Group and the broader development community to mobilize trillions of dollars in new investments at a time when global growth is slowing and overseas development assistance is declining.

This session will feature a panel of high-level experts who will share their insights on potential strategies for how the World Bank Group and broader development community can tap capital markets more effectively to mobilize financing for development initiatives. The discussion will draw on recent lessons, including our new report which examined the WBG’s experience with supporting capital market development over the last ten years. Follow the conversation live on Twitter at #Fin4Dev
