Catalysing Peace Finance as part of WEF Humanitarian and Resilience Investing Initiative 

January 18, 2024
hello world!

Impact requires partnerships. As announced at Davos, World Economic Forum's Humanitarian and Resilience Investing (HRI) Initiative has the potential to unlock over USD 15 billion for investment in frontier markets. We are proud to be one of the organisations turning ambition into action: https://www.weforum.org/press/2024/01/wef24-top-organizations-unlock-new-investments-to-support-the-world-s-most-vulnerable/

“Peace-positive investment can de-risk investments in emerging markets and fragile settings for both investors and communities. African Development Bank Group and Interpeace have called upon partners to join forces to create standards, develop market intelligence, facilitate partnerships across sectors, share knowledge, and jointly create a pipeline of peace positive sovereign and non-sovereign operations.”

The commitment Interpeace's Finance for Peace initiative has made:

“We need to pursue efforts to support peace and security on the continent with more innovative approaches so that we can more effectively mitigate structural drivers of violence and conflict leading to fragility and humanitarian crises. Strengthening existing partnerships and forming new ones across the Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus is critical to achieving this, and the African Development Bank has been at the forefront of this endeavour”, said Marie-Laure Akin-Olugbade, Vice-President, Regional Development, Integration and Business Delivery of the AfDB.
