Global Prosperity

Theme Leaders:   Fariborz Moshirian and Elise Payzan

As part of the process of globalisation,  financing, or the lack of financing, for endeavours in the areas of environmental issues including climate finance and challenges associated implementating the principles of ESG, achieving the UN’s17 SDG objectives by 2030, will have direct and indirect impact on national, regional and global financial stability, individual and global financial security and global inclusive prosperity. The IGF has been working with the Asian Development Bank on the above issues.  

The IGF has published several high impact research works and organised a number of international policy fora, in collaboration with the Asian Development Bank,  that deal with the above issues, including climate change and climate finance. The IGF, in collaboration with the Asian Development Bank has promoted those policies that can develop more effective financial architecture for developing countries as well as financial policies that can accelerate the process of achieving UN SDGs by 2030.  The IGF jointly published a book with the Asian Development Bank, on "Climate Change and Climate Finance: Current Experience and Future Directions" in September 2023.

The IGF’s engagement and policy research with eminent researchers and joint work with the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank are part of the overall objectives of providing global leadership in factors that contribute to global inclusive prosperity, taking into account the culture and diversity of peoples and nations.
