Development finance: Filling today’s funding gap

Brookings Institution  
Policy Initiative: Sustainable Finance
3. August 2018

The Business and Sustainable Development Commission, Chaired by Lord Mark Malloch-Brown and comprised of business leaders from around the world, reports that it will likely require around $2.4 trillion a year of additional investment to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs) by 2030. It also estimates that achieving those goals could open up as much as $12 trillion of market investment opportunities in four categories—food and agriculture, sustainable cities, energy and materials, and health and well-being.[1] While that represents an enormous opportunity, it also prompts the question of what options exist to bridge the current gap in financing.
