Contributing to green and inclusive growth through a industrial and financial development policy

Higher productivity and efficient use of resources is key for increasing the standard of living and reducing poverty without compromising the ecological imperatives. 

Private and public sectors are complimentary to achieve green and inclusive growth. The public sector is responsible for the framework in which private investments take place and must set the incentives to direct resources towards their best use. The financial sector enables private sector development and sustainable economic growth by providing substantial capital in terms of loans, investments and mezzanine finance. The provision of capital meets increasingly stricter environmental, social and governance requirements. It challenges investees to become acquainted with the latest developments.

This unique program addresses both issues: the design of an effective industrial policy and of sustainable and impact finance strategies aimed at the development and growth of a flourishing but sustainable private sector.

The program consists of two main blocks one one week each. During the first week the focus is on Sustainable & Impact Finance and in the second week the focus is on Industrial Policy.

Sustainable & Impact Finance
Private sector development in developing and emerging markets increasingly runs into the need of financiers for projects that meet environmental, social and governance criteria – and that render a net-positive impact on the community, the business environment, the natural environment, et cetera. But what is sustainable and impact investing and what should investees know about it to be able to successfully attract finance or investments?

Through this highly interactive course, with contributions from leading academics and experts from the field of sustainable and impact finance, you will be able to master this increasingly important subject to influence the direction of your business, your economy, your society. Whether you work in the financial sector, an industry, the government, a multilateral organization, or an NGO – understanding sustainable and impact finance helps you to address the challenges towards a prosperous society – and all that is comprised by it – now and for the future generations.

Industrial Policy
Higher productivity and efficient use of resources is key for increasing the standard of living and reducing poverty without compromising the ecological imperatives. Industrial policy aims at increasing productivity and efficiency by promoting industries and new economic activities.

Private and public sector are complimentary to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth. The public sector helps overcoming growth obstacles and provides incentives to the private sector development that contribute most to the common good. Developing and efficiently implementing a coherent industrial policy strategy, involving all stakeholders, has been at the heart of the impressive development of highly successful emerging economies, and will be vital for latecomer countries to catch-up.

through this highly interactive course you will be enabled to contribute to an industrial policy strategy formulation that aims at removing private sector development obstacles, and directing the economy on a sustainable and inclusive growth path. You will be exposed to experiences by both successful and less successful countries and you will have the chance to discuss with leading experts the crucial success factors.
