The World Federation of Development Financing Institution’s Knowledge Hub (WFDFI_KH) is an online portal that clusters knowledge and resources on development financing across all development intervention areas. It is a free-for all web space where development financing practitioners and enthusiasts could access existing and compelling knowledge products from a wide range of institutions, with diverse structure and procedures, engaged in supporting and promoting development finance and its crosscutting issues in advancing policies, processes, programs, projects and practices for the benefits of their beneficiaries and stakeholders. The two-fold purposes of the WFDFI_KH are shaping and advancing policy and advocacy positions that impact the development of the banking and finance community worldwide and improve DFI capacity, as well as facilitating knowledge management and sharing.
The lecture was held at a time of heightened geoplitical tensions, which could have significant implications for global trading and financial systems with far-reaching impact for African and Caribbean countries and, more generally, for developing economies.

This monograph provides an overview of the various impacts of climate change on the provision of water and sanitation services, as well as the adaptation options available to water operators.

The risk outlook for regional financial conditions is
generally balanced. On the upside, softening inflation in
the region has led most regional central banks to move
toward the end of their monetary tightening cycles.
A faster-than-expected decline in inflation in advanced
economies, combined with financial risk considerations,
might lead to a less hawkish monetary stance in advanced
economies. However, the inflation path remains
uncertain. Elevated price pressures together with a robust
economic performance and strong job market in the US
could support further monetary tightening.
This volume gathers the latest analysis on policymakers’
and corporates’ efforts on climate change, climate finance, and ESG.
It identifies prominent areas of interest, of concern, and of success, to give
firms and policymakers additional guidance as they look to build more
effective and resilient strategies and action plans for the immediate years
ahead. Opportunities abound, but so do potential pitfalls, meaning that greater
transparency and information sharing will assist efforts to ensure that those
opportunities are utilized effectively.
