Description: In its Communication on the global response the pandemic, the EU announces that the mobilisation of €15.6 billion from existing external actions will allow its action to be “fast, adapted, and operational.” Blended finance and guarantee funds should play a significant role in the Team Europe response, as they will allow to leverage new financial resources. The European Investment Bank will contribute €5.2 billion to the EU response to COVID-19 outside the EU.

The Development Finance Institutions (DFI) Alliance announced efforts to mobilize financial resources and bring technical expertise to private sector enterprises in emerging and frontier markets. This webinar will bring together development specialists, DFIs, and financial tech firms, to explore and compare instruments and mechanisms implemented by EU Member states and international donors.
