Join the growing numbers of those who understand the importance of combining public resources with private and commercial finance for the common good to implement the 17 SDGs. Over the four-week course, participants will hear from prominent government, international organization and private sector leaders who have considerable first-hand experience in preparing and implementing development projects and forging public-private collaborations globally and regionally. The challenges and successes of mobilizing billions to generate the trillions needed will also be outlined.
This course includes terminology, key concepts, sources of development finance, public, private and commercial, and multilateral, and the need for increased use of ODA and innovative financing solutions to mobilize and leverage domestic and official development resources alongside private funds. Participants learn through video presentations, core reading materials and links to additional videos and readings. Join the conversation through discussion boards, two Google Hangouts, Twitter chats and other interactive features that encourage active learning.
