17 Big Bets for a Better World


Sam Lampert, Stig Tackmann and Tamara Pironnet

From Dalberg Global Development Advisors

Friday, 17 February 2017
OECD Headquarters – room E


Last year saw international consensus on 17 ambitious global goals to end poverty, tackle the consequences of climate change and make the world more inclusive and prosperous. Realising such goals demands investing a staggering USD 5 to 7 trillion each year. It also requires governments, the corporate community and civil society to collectively find smart solutions that challenge traditional approaches to development.

In the anthology 17 Big Bets for a Better World, thought leaders from all sectors and corners of the world present their single best bet on what it will take to realise the global goals before 2030. From the OECD’s Secretary-General and India’s leading ICT entrepreneur, to one of East Africa’s most innovative banks and Michelin chef Dan Barber, this publication offers innovative and unconventional solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. The perspectives presented spark debate and dialogue and question business-as-usual approaches. For those at the forefront of crafting public policies, this exercise is a concrete tool to fuel fresh thinking, new processes and bold action to build the world we seek.

Stig Tackmann, Sam Lampert and Tamara Pironnet, from Dalberg Global Development Advisors, will delve into the exciting findings of this anthology and discuss the implications for policy makers.
