2015 is a pivotal year for sustainable development. In September 2015, the United Nations and its 193 member states will adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an ambitious set of goals for economic growth, poverty reduction and environmental sustainability. To support these goals, a new global financing framework will be required, which brings public and private finance together to support long-term investments globally.

On February 3, 2015, Investec Asset Management (IAM) and the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) co-hosted the London Financing for Sustainable Development Forum. This Forum, held at the Honourable Artillery Company’s headquarters in London, brought together over 150 leading figures across the financial services and policy-making spheres, in order to discuss, amongst other subjects, inclusive capitalism, infrastructure finance, climate finance and global partnerships.

The conference is one in a series in the lead-up to the Third International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD) Conference, due to convene in Addis Ababa in July 2015, which will play a critical role in the world’s adoption of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 and a strong climate agreement in Paris.
