Event Description

How can we mobilise more and better finance to meet global development goals?  What contributions are being made by the private sector, and how can these be incentivized and made more effective in terms of their impact on poverty and development?


The panel included:


  • Judith Randel, Co-founder and Director, Development Initiatives
  • Chris West, Director, Shell Foundation
  • Alistair Fernie, Head of Private Sector Department, DFID


Chair: Simon Maxwell, Adviser, Business Fights Poverty


DI presented data to stimulate discussion on the impact of all financial resources on poverty. DI’s new Investments to End Poverty programme sets out the data picture on the volume and distribution of different international resource flows and promotes the idea that all financial resources, official and private, have a role to play in getting poverty to zero in the context of social progress and development. All investments – domestic and international, public, private and commercial – can contribute to ending poverty.
