Join leaders, experts and activists to discuss how we can best respond to the multiple overlapping crises facing developing countries. How can we work together to navigate an uncertain world?
From conflict to COVID-19 to climate change, successive crises have created unprecedented challenges for developing countries. We are seeing the sharpest slowdown in economic activity in 80 years, rising inflation, deepening food insecurity, the war in Ukraine and wider fragility, unsustainable debt burdens, the continued negative impact of COVID-19, and worsening poverty. Urgent action is also needed to reduce emissions and help countries adapt to the impacts of climate change. Developing countries are faced with navigating these multiple challenges, which are deepening inequality and reversing development gains.
Join us for in-depth analysis and high-level discussion on investing in education, accelerating climate finance, promoting inclusive growth and responding to the food and fuel crises. Read less
