THE ROAD TO COP 27: TRANSITIONING TO GREEN ECONOMY

2 June 2022; 09:00 – 10:30 AM

Venue: Tonino Lamborghini International Convention Center Sharm El Sheikh (Suez Canal Hall)

OVERVIEW:

Climate impacts are worsening and the window of opportunity for action is closing rapidly, posing risks to sustainable development, with over three billion people living in vulnerable hotspots globally, many of whom are in developing countries. Adaptation and sustainable development are inextricably linked and mutually reinforcing. Despite progress on adaptation planning, widening gaps persist between planning and implementation. Adaptation action remains fragmented, incremental, unequally distributed, and takes place at small scales and short time horizons. Global temperatures are likely to reach or exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels in the next 20 years, breaking the target set under the Paris Agreement. While IsDB MCs are among the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change, countries have already begun adaptation actions. However, they are in need of more tailored support matching their national context and a stronger engagement of private actors.

KEY ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED:

  1. How can countries move beyond incremental progress to achieve “transformational adaptation”?
  2. What is needed to close the adaptation financing gap and how can this be better linked to local and national planning, access to finance, capacity building support as well as broader public and private investment?
  3. How can actions on loss and damage, including cross border development, disaster risk reduction and humanitarian communities, be made more coherent?
  4. What are the challenges, best practices, and next steps for implementing commitments from the Glasgow Climate Pact and related declarations and pledges for key emitting sectors?
  5. How can COP27 accelerate the alignment of financing flows from all sources to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, in the context of developing countries’ needs?

CLIMATE PROOFING FOR SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS: “DECENT LIFE INITIATIVE AS A CASE STUDY”

1 June 2022; 9:00 - 10:30 AM

Venue: Tonino Lamborghini International Convention Center Sharm El Sheikh (Suez Canal Hall)

OVERVIEW:

Despite being among the least contributors to global Green House Gas (GHG) emissions, many member states of the IsDB are facing a wide range of socio-economic challenges related to climate change. Such challenges exceed these countries’ adaptive capacities such as increasing temperatures, rising sea-levels, abrupt changes in precipitation, and extreme weather events. Such cascading challenges pose significant risks to agriculture and food security and affect the livelihoods of the local communities and potentially reversing hard earned developmental gains. Such risks are also considered the root-causes of “climate-induced migration” phenomenon. The situation was aggravated after the outbreak of the pandemic as the amount of finance dedicated for developmental purposes decreased due to the retrenchment of private sector investment, the decline in government revenue, and the souring debt crisis of developing countries. The challenge has now intensified due to the geo-political instability caused by the conflict in Ukraine, amidst a situation of global recession and inflationary pressures. In Egypt, the presidential initiative “Haya Karima” (Decent life) has been recognized by UN-DESA as one of the accelerators to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs) at the local level, The initiative aims to raising the quality of life of nearly 58% of the Egyptian population living in rural areas where poverty is mostly concentrated.

KEY ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED:

  1. What are the policies adopted by the IsDB’s member states (especially among panelists) in achieving sustainable development while ensuring climate proofing?
  2. What have been the recent interventions of the Government of Egypt that took climate-aspects into consideration? How are climate considerations integrated in such programs/interventions?
  3. Focusing on Egypt’s “Decent Life” Initiative:
    1. How is the initiative meant to bridge developmental gaps during COVID-19 implications?
    2. How is the initiative meant to achieve inclusivity and “Leaving No One Behind”?
    3. How is investing in human development and human capital prioritized and why?
    4. How is it applying climate proofing towards promoting green sustainable livelihoods? (infrastructure, solar energy and clean environment)
  4. How should partnerships (global, regional, and local) be leveraged to ensure inclusivity? What are the benefits of a participatory approach in policymaking and intervention design?

A GREEN ECONOMY IN THE CONTEXT OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: FROM THE CONCEPT TO THE PRACTICE

2 June 2022; 3:00 – 4:30 PM

Venue: Tonino Lamborghini International Convention Center Sharm El Sheikh (Sinai Hall)

OVERVIEW:

The concept of a resilient economy has become increasingly important since the 2008 financial crisis. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many jobs disappeared leading to a rise in unemployment rate. Experts believe that one of the most adequate solutions is to redirect the capital towards sustainable economic sectors that have a significant potential to generate green jobs. The green economy is characterized by a considerable increase in investment in economic sectors that supports the natural capital of earth or contribute to reducing environmental deficiencies and environmental threats. Moving towards a more circular economy could deliver benefits such as reducing pressure on the environment, improving the security of the supply of raw materials, increasing competitiveness, stimulating innovation, boosting economic growth, and creating decent jobs. When seeking to promote sustainability in the transportation sector it is important also to pay attention to employment outcomes and to policies that support job creation and decent work.

KEY ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED:

  1. How does technology adoption in large conventional sectors affect efficiency and value-addition?
  2. How can technology enable business continuity and provision of goods and services during times of crisis?
  3. How could the utilization of data increase social and environmental benefits?
  4. How does a synergy between the public and private sectors allow for faster technology adoption in the different economic sectors?
  5. How green is the labor market? What are the environmental properties of jobs, and how do those properties vary across economies and sectors? How are they associated with demographic characteristics (such as educational attainment and urbanicity) and earnings?
  6. How do environmental policies affect the reallocation of workers into greener jobs? Can policies help make the labor market greener? Is the effectiveness of such policies affected by an economy’s labor market policies and structural features? What are the consequences for overall employment and income distribution?

FINANCING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: FROM A SUSTAINABLE AND INCLUSIVE RECOVERY TO A RESILIENT FUTURE

03 June 2022; 10:00 AM – 12 PM

Venue: Tonino Lamborghini International Convention Center Sharm El Sheikh (Sinai Hall)

OVERVIEW:

The pandemic has had a significant impact on the worldwide economy, especially nations that are already under heavy debt burdens or subject to debt vulnerabilities. The situation was further aggravated with the outbreak of the large-scale conflict in Ukraine, shaking the global economy and increasing uncertainty. There is an urgent need for resilient recovery with the ultimate aim of achieving sustainability. The financial system must be strengthened to support in meeting the SDGs by 2030. Among the key elements to mobilizing the financing needed for a more sustainable and resilient future in Egypt and beyond include:

  • Reprioritizing spending towards development goals with more SDG aligned national planning, spending and implementation.
  • Reinforcing the recent path of fiscal consolidation and reducing reliance on foreign borrowing and volatile external inflows, while providing the fiscal space for the private sector to grow.

KEY ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED:

  1. How can we best align financing to the SDGs and development priorities? How can we leverage innovative financing channels to support achieving the SDGs?
  2. What are Integrated National Financing Frameworks? Why have INFFs grown in importance during the ear of post-pandemic recovery, especially for Middle-Income countries?
  3. At a time of global inflationary pressures, how to best scale up access to affordable finance for developing countries?
  4. What innovative debt management instruments can be used to ensure sustainable debt management and debt architecture?
  5. What is “impact investing”?  and does it serve achieving the SDGs? What is its global landscape at the moment? (with a focus on IsDB member countries)

PERSPECTIVES ÉCONOMIQUES DES PAYS MEMBRES DE LA BID

4 juin 2022 – 15h.30 – 16h. 30

Lieu : Tonino Lamborghini International Convention Center, Charm-el-Cheikh

APERÇU

Alors que les efforts de relance économique se poursuivent et que le monde continue de lutter contre le COVID-19 et l'apparition régulière de nouvelles mutations, l'économie planétaire est secouée par un autre choc exogène - la crise est-européenne. Ses aspects humanitaires directs en Ukraine et en Russie ont été la principale préoccupation au début de la crise, suscitant des sanctions économiques de la part de l'Occident. Toutefois, l’aggravation de la situation a laissé apparaître clairement que les incidences de la crise dépassent largement les frontières des pays directement concernés. Les marchés mondiaux ont été ébranlés par la flambée des prix des produits de base, ce qui a fait peser des menaces sur la sécurité énergétique et alimentaire, notamment dans les pays vulnérables. Si l'on n'y remédie pas, cette situation aura un impact durable sur l'économie mondiale.

Bien qu'ils ne soient pas directement concernés par la crise, les pays membres de la Banque islamique de développement (BID) ne sont pas à l'abri de ces chocs. Dans ce contexte, la BID organisera un événement en marge de la réunion annuelle du Groupe prévue en 2022 en Égypte. Le Fonds monétaire international (FMI) y est invité pour partager son point de vue sur les perspectives économiques mondiales, avec un accent particulier sur les pays membres de la BID, ce dans le but d'enrichir le corpus de connaissances.

Principales questions À traiter

  1. Quelles sont les implications de la crise est-européenne sur l'économie mondiale et les pays membres de la BID ?
  2. Dans quelle mesure ce large éventail de sanctions et contre-sanctions affectera-t-il le système financier international et les pays membres de la BID ?
  3. Dans quelle mesure les pays membres de la BID sont-ils affectés par la crise ? Quels sont les principaux mécanismes de transmission ?
  4. Comment les pays membres de la BID pourraient-ils faire face aux principaux défis éventuels en matière de sécurité alimentaire, d'inflation, de transferts de fonds et de tourisme, ainsi que de croissance économique générale et de reprise dans le contexte de la pandémie de COVID-19 ?

الآفاق الاقتصادية للبلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلامي للتنمية

4 يونيو 2022 من الساعة 1:30 إلى الساعة 2:30 بعد الظهر

المكان: مركز تونينو لامبورغيني الدولي للمؤتمرات بشرم الشيخ (قاعة قناة السويس)

نظرة عامة:

بينما تتواصل جهود التعافي الاقتصاديّ ويواصل العالم مكافحته لجائحة كوفيد-19 وللظهور المنتظم للتحوُّرات الجديدة، إذ اهتزّ الاقتصادُ العالميّ بصدمة خارجية أخرى- هي أزمة أوروبا الشرقية. وقد كانت الجوانب الإنسانية المباشرة في أوكرانيا وروسيا الشغل الشاغل في بداية الأزمة، ما جعل الغرب يفرض عقوبات اقتصادية. غير أن تفاقم الأوضاع كشف بوضوح أن تأثير الأزمة يتجاوز حدود البلدين المعنيّين مباشرة تجاوزاً كبيراً. فقد اهتزت الأسواق العالمية بارتفاع حادّ في أسعار السلع الأساسية، وشكّل ذلك تهديداً لأمن الطاقة والغذاء، ولا سيما في البلدان الضعيفة. وإذا لم يُتدارَك الأمر، فإنه يُتوقَّع أن يخلِّف تأثيراً مستديماً على الاقتصاد العالميّ.

ومع أن البلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلامي للتنمية ("البنك") ليست أطرافاً مباشرة في الأزمة، فإنها ليست بمنأىً عن هذه الصدمات. وفي هذا السياق، سينظم البنك فعالية جانبية خلال الاجتماع السنوي لمجموعة البنك الإسلامي للتنمية (2022) الذي يُعقَد بمصر. وقد وجِّهت الدعوة إلى صندوق النقد الدوليّ لعرض وجهة نظره في آفاق الاقتصاد العالميّ، مع إيلاء اهتمام خاصّ للبلدان الأعضاء في البنك.

القضايا الأساسية المزمع تناولها:

1.    ما انعكاسات أزمة أوروبا الشرقية على الاقتصاد العالميّ والبلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلاميّ للتنمية؟

2.    كيف ستؤثر العقوبات والعقوبات المضادّة الواسعة النطاق على النظام الماليّ الدوليّ والبلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلاميّ للتنمية؟

3.    كيف تتأثر البلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلاميّ للتنمية بالأزمة؟ وما الآليات الرئيسة لنقلها إلى هذه البلدان؟

4.  كيف يمكن للبلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلامي للتنمية أن تواجه المشكلات الكبرى المحتملة في مجال الأمن الغذائي والتضخم وتحويل الأموال والسياحة والنموّ الاقتصاديّ العامّ والتعافي في خضمّ جائحة كوفيد-19؟

PROCHAINE ÉTAPE DANS LES POLITIQUES FONDÉES SUR DES DONNÉES PROBANTES : TRACER LA VOIE À SUIVRE

2 juin 2022 – 11 h. – 13 h.  

Lieu: Tonino Lamborghini International Convention Center, Charm-el-Cheikh

Aperçu

Les programmes de développement social sont essentiels pour aider les pays à atteindre leurs objectifs de développement. Ils renforcent la compétitivité de l’économie et ont des effets multiplicateurs importants. Cependant, les pays membres de la BID sont confrontés à des difficultés liées à la conception, au ciblage, à la mise en œuvre et à la gestion des performances des programmes sociaux de manière optimale. Un moyen de renforcer l'efficacité des politiques de développement social consiste à utiliser des données probantes pour déterminer la conception des programmes ou, en l’absence de ces données, procéder à des évaluations rigoureuses pour comprendre les impacts des programmes. En nous appuyant sur des données et des éléments issus d'évaluations d'impact rigoureuses, nous pouvons mieux comprendre les besoins réels des groupes vulnérables et les interventions qui fonctionnent, dans quels contextes, et pourquoi. Pour les pays membres de la BID, il existe des possibilités certaines d'améliorer leur évaluation des interventions et des politiques liées à la protection sociale, la promotion de l’emploi et d'autres programmes visant à promouvoir le développement du capital humain.

En Indonésie et en Égypte, les agences gouvernementales se sont fortement engagées à utiliser des données probantes pour améliorer l'efficacité de la politique de développement. Cet événement permettra d'expliquer comment fonctionnent les partenariats entre le gouvernement et les chercheurs, comment ils peuvent être conçus et comment ils peuvent contribuer à faire des recherches rigoureuses pour déterminer la conception des politiques. Concrètement, il permettra de partager les résultats des partenariats dirigés par les gouvernements avec « Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab » en Indonésie, en Égypte et dans plusieurs autres pays, avec des représentants des pouvoirs publics qui feront la lumière sur les priorités de développement et les programmes et politiques fondés sur des données probantes adoptés par les gouvernements égyptien et indonésien. Il permettra également aux pays membres de la BID d’intégrer une culture de politiques fondées sur des données probantes et de transformer leur politique de développement en un système plus complet, plus souple et plus durable, capable de résister aux chocs et de renforcer la résilience des populations vulnérables. Enfin, il offrira aux autres pays membres de la BID un modèle pour envisager la mise en œuvre de laboratoires intégrés de développement social.

Cet événement est conjointement organisé par le ministère égyptien de la Planification et du développement économique, « Community Jameel » et « Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) ».

المرحلة التالية في السياسات القائمة على الأدلة: رسم الآفاق المستقبلية

2 يونيو 2022 من الساعة 11:00 صباحاً إلى الساعة 1:00 بعد الظهر

المكان: مركز تونينو لامبورغيني الدوليّ للمؤتمرات بشرم الشيخ (قاعة قناة السويس)

نظرة عامة:

برامج التنمية الاجتماعية ضرورية لمساعدة البلدان على بلوغ أهدافها الإنمائية. فهي تساهم في تحقيق اقتصاد أكثر تنافسية وتُحدِث تأثيرات مضاعِفة كبيرة. غير أن البلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلامي للتنمية تواجه صعوبات في مجال تصميم البرامج الاجتماعيّة وتوجيهها وتنفيذها وإدارة أدائها بطريقة مثلى.

 وتتمثل إحدى طرق تعزيز فعالية سياسات التنمية الاجتماعية في كيفية توظيف الأدلة لتصميم البرامج، أو لإجراء تقييمات دقيقة تمكِّن من فهم تأثيرات تلك البرامج عند عدم وجود أدلّة. فنحن، عندما نستخدم البيانات والأدلّة المتأتية من التقييمات الدقيقة للأثر، نستطيع أن نفهم بشكل أفضل الاحتياجات الفعلية للفئات المستضعفة، وأن نعزّز فهمنا لما هي التدخلات الناجحة وسياقاتها وأسبابها.

ونحن نعتقد بأنه توجد فرصة كبيرة أمام البلدان الأعضاء في البنك لتحسين قدراتها في تقييم التدخلات التنموية والسياسات المرتبطة بالحماية الاجتماعية، والتدخلات المرتبطة بتشجيع العمل، وكذلك تلك المرتبطة بالبرامج الأخرى التي ترمي إلى تطوير رأس المال البشريّ.

هذا وقد حرصت الهيئات الحكومية في إندونيسيا ومصر حرصاً كبيراً على توظيف الأدلة لتحسين فعالية السياسة الإنمائية. وستمكِّن هذه الجلسة من التعريف بالطريقة التي تجري بها الشراكات الحكومية مع الباحثين، وبالكيفية التي يمكنها بها المساهمة في إجراء بحوث دقيقة تدعم تصميم السياسات. وبعبارة أدق، ستعرِّف هذه الجلسة بالشراكات الحكومية مع "مختبَر عبد اللطيف جميل لمكافحة الفقر" في إندونيسيا ومصر وعدّة بلدان أخرى، وسيسلِّط ممثلون حكوميون الضوء على الأولويات الإنمائية والبرامج والسياسات القائمة على الأدلة التي اعتمدتها حكومتا مصر وإندونيسيا.

كذلك، ستساعد هذه الجلسة البلدان الأعضاء في البنك على فهم أفضل لثقافة اتخاذ القرارات المبنية على الأدلة وتحويل سياساتها الإنمائية إلى نظام أكثر شمولاً ومرونة واستدامة يتنبَّه للصدمات ويعزِّز قدرة الشرائح السكانية المستضعَفة على الصمود. وستقدِّم الجلسة أيضا للبلدان الأعضاء في البنك نموذجاً يلهمها التفكيرَ في إنشاء مختبرات مدمَجة للتنمية الاجتماعية.

وتُنظَّم هذه الفعالية بالتعاون بين وزارة التخطيط والتنمية الاقتصادية المصرية، ومجتمع جميل، ومختبر عبد اللطيف جميل لمكافحة الفقر.

القضايا الأساسية المزمع تناولها:

1.    كيف يمكننا تعزيز تأثير الحماية الاجتماعية وبرامج الحد من الفقر؟

2.    ما هي عوامل النجاح الرئيسية والفرص والتحديات في أجندة التنمية الاجتماعية لمصر؟ (حياة كريمة، استراتيجية تنمية الأسرة، إلخ.)

3.    الاستراتيجيات الإندونيسية للتعجيل الشامل بالحدّ من الفقر.

4     تقدم العمل في المختبرات المدمَجة للتنمية الاجتماعية في البلدان الأعضاء في البنك الإسلامي للتنمية.

5.    كيف يمكن تعظيم مزايا "المعمل المصريّ لقياس الأثر"؟

6.    ما الدور الذي يمكن أن يضطلع به البنك الإسلامي للتنمية في دعم برامج التنمية الاجتماعية لبلدانه؟
