Setting reforms in motion to boost sustainable investment

The fifth annual roundtable examined how sustainable investment actors – public and private, domestic and foreign - can work together to identify concrete reforms for sustainable investment and set these reforms in motion.

High-level policymakers and distinguished speakers from the development co-operation community, international organisations, the private sector, academia and civil society contributed their views and insights on what real-world actions, partnerships and co-ordination mechanisms are required to boost international investment and report on its sustainability impact.

The Roundtable on Investment and Sustainable Development is a core part of OECD work on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (see OECD Action Plan on the Sustainable Development Goals).

It serves as a platform to discuss and develop new forms of OECD engagement that support policy coherence and maximise the role of private investment as a catalyst for sustainable development.

Under the strategic guidance of the OECD Investment Committee, the roundtable seeks synergies with related initiatives in other fora, including the UN and its agencies, the World Bank Group, and regional development banks.
