The Time is Now

As the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to set back development progress for a generation, it is clearer than ever that serious structural changes are needed to safeguard communities around the world, and the planet itself. We still haven’t worked out how to provide public goods and services effectively and fairly across the world. That’s why I wish the Expert Working Group on Global Public Investment the very best in their deliberations. The Global Public Investment approach is our best bet for modernising international public finance for the 21st century.
