Join us on November 3, as the Center for Sustainable Development at Brookings hosts a virtual event to create space for DFIs, civil society organizations, the private sector, and shareholders to engage with key issues on DFI transparency. As part of the event, we will launch a research report “Advancing DFI Transparency – The rationale and roadmap for better impact, accountability, and markets.” The panel will discuss recommendations for greater global disclosure and how donors can better engage with national stakeholders and improve the publication of their development financing. The event will also introduce our new DFI Transparency Tool.
As part of our DFI Transparency Initiative we held a webinar presenting the findings from our fifth work stream on the transparency of the Financial Intermediary investments of development finance institutions (DFIs).
Our DFI Transparency Initiative has benefitted from the input of experts from development finance institutions (DFIs) themselves, from civil society organisations, and from private sector investors. Aubrey Hruby has been on the Project Advisory Board since the initiative’s inception and brings a wealth of experience of helping investors understand and enter African capital markets. Aubrey shared her perspective on how better transparency can drive more equitable access to development finance when she sat down with our CEO, Gary Forster.
There is inadequate disclosure of both aggregate and project level financial information across development finance institutions (DFIs), according to new research from our DFI Transparency Initiative. The research examined the transparency of 17 bilateral and multilateral DFIs and found that transparency gaps make it difficult to assess DFIs contribution to market building.
Catch up on our webinar sharing the findings from our fourth work stream on Value of Investment: Mobilisation & Structure of Deal. For this work stream, we have been assessing the transparency of the way that development finance institutions (DFIs) structure the financial aspects of their direct investments.
Our DFI Transparency Initiative has completed its fourth Work Stream (Value of Investment: Mobilisation & Structure of Deal). The research report identifies a number of areas where consistency of reporting and Development Finance Institution (DFI) transparency could be improved. Here our CEO, Gary Forster, speaks with Nadia Nikolova, portfolio manager at Allianz Global Investors about why DFI transparency is important for the private sector.
