ALIDE 2020 General Assembly

The ALIDE 2020 General Assembly will take place as a virtual meeting in the form of a series of digital events on the topic: Building sustainable and resilient responses to the Covid-19 crisis –Latin America & the Caribbean. The series of digital events is being organized jointly by ALIDE, IDFC, IDB, and BDMG and will constitute a Latin American and Caribbean contribution toward the Finance in Common Summit (IDFC, Paris, November 10-12, 2020). The impact of COVID-19 on the economic and social sectors in the LAC countries is posing major challenges to Development Financing Institutions (DFIs). In this context, discussions will focus, on the one hand, on the short-term financial response to the crisis by identifying policies and instruments to support the production and entrepreneurial structure; and on the other, on the role of DFIs in furthering sustainable and inclusive medium- and long-term economic recovery, in line with global climate agendas and the Sustainable Development Goals. These subjects will be analyzed by prestigious speakers and a high-level panel. MORE INFORMATION
