Date: 19 and 20 October 2022
Place: Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire)
On October 19 and 20, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) are organizing the 3rd edition of the Finance in Common Summit (FICS) in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The event will take place in person and online under the theme: “Green and Just Transition for a Sustainable Recovery”.
The summit will “reaffirm the key role of public development banks in supporting the transformation of economies and financial systems towards sustainability,” the AfDB said on its website. “The Covid-19 crisis has wiped out decades of economic investment and social progress. It is therefore crucial to integrate the principles of green and just transition into the investments and operations of all financial actors in order to rebuild a greener and fairer economy,” the institution adds.
Several themes will be addressed on this occasion, namely “the importance of joint financing for resilience and adaptation”, “green infrastructure and quality”, “health and social protection” ….
This event will be preceded by a one-day research conference on public development banks on 18 October 2022.
