The 3rd edition of the Finance in Common Summit (FiCS) will be co-organized by the African Development Bank and the European Investment Bank from 18-20 October 2022 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire as a hybrid event, allowing virtual and in person participation.
The event’s theme will be “Green and Just transition for a sustainable recovery”. It will be preceded by a one-day Research Conference on Public Development Banks on 18 October 2022.
The Summit will provide an opportunity to highlight the key role of Public Development Banks (PDBs) in supporting the transformation of economies and financial systems towards sustainability. As the COVID 19 crisis wrote off decades of economic investments and social progress, it is crucial to mainstream green and just transition principles in all financial actors’ investments and operations in order to build back greener and fairer.
The third FiCS Summit will foster debates on the importance to finance in common resilience and adaptation, green and quality infrastructure, health and social protection, while supporting human rights-based approach and fighting against inequalities.
