Register now for the Financing for Development Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).
As you know, 2015 is a critical year for development. With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a new global framework for development has been put in place for the next 15 years. Achieving this ambitious post-2015 agenda will need a different magnitude of financing, one that will surpass the current capacities of governments and international donors. We need to leverage the “billions” in Official Development Assistance (ODA) to attract and mobilize “trillions” in investments of all kinds: public and private, national and global, in both capital and capacity.
This MOOC will familiarize participants with the new development agenda and the use of finance, including innovative solutions, to fund the SDGs and meet our Bank Group goals of ending poverty and boosting shared prosperity by 2030. Participants will hear from prominent government, international organization and private sector leaders. Each has considerable first-hand experience in preparing and implementing development projects and forging public-private collaborations globally and regionally.
