Expert Meeting on "Financial and Corporate Incentives for Long-term Investment"

  • Date: Friday, 15 December 2017, 9 am - 6 pm
  • Location: Conference Room 6, UNHQ, New York

Taskforce Members are invited to an expert meeting organised by the Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development on “Financial and Corporate Incentives for Long-term Investment”.

The Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development includes a commitment by the Member States to “endeavour to design policies, including capital market regulations where appropriate, that promote incentives along the investment chain that are aligned with long-term performance and sustainability indicators, and that reduce excess volatility.” In the intergovernmentally agreed conclusions and recommendations of the 2017 Economic and Social Council Forum on Financing for Development Follow-up, Member States of the United Nations “looked forward to findings of the Task Force, including on how fiduciary responsibilities and non-financial impacts are viewed and taken into account, within its mandate and existing resources and as part of its 2018 report.” 

The deliberations at the meeting will inform the drafting of a section on Incentives along the investment chain in the 2018 Task Force report and will be published on the Online Annex. For further information, please contact DESA/Financing for Development Office, Mr. Krishnan Sharma (email sharmak@un.org, tel. 1 (212) 963-4451) and Mr. Arend Janssen (email janssena@un.org, tel. 1 (212) 963-5620).
