The forum aimed to address key investment challenges caused by today’s multiple global crises, including the need to invest in food security, energy, health, supply chain resilience, and productive capacity growth in the poorest countries – all under the established WIF theme of Investing in Sustainable Development.
The forum also provided policymakers and other stakeholders with the opportunity to find solutions and reach a consensus on climate finance and investment priorities over the course of five days, with outcomes feeding into the COP negotiations.
