This breakfast event, hosted on the first ministerial day of the 2017 High-Level Political Forum, brings together ministers, senior officials, permanent representatives and ‘leave no one behind’ stakeholders and champions to review progress and share inspiring examples of progress. The event builds on commitments made at a Government of The Netherlands and ODI-hosted 2016 HLPF side event: Early action to leave no one behind: delivering for the world’s poorest people.
At this event, three countries present overviews of their approach to ‘leaving no one behind’ in their national contexts. The event also launches a new ODI ‘leave no one behind index’, assessing the ‘leave no one behind’ readiness of the 44 countries presenting their Voluntary National Reviews at this year’s HLPF, along with detailed findings from analysis in five of those countries of the extent to which donor aid targets the poorest.
The 2017 Boulder RAFP will offer 12 elective courses to choose from delivered by the Boulder Faculty, a diverse group of world-renowned experts, covering a broad range of topics and viewpoints. The program will also feature The Boulder Rural and Agricultural Finance Master Class, a dynamic roundtable event designed and led by Panos Varangis (World Bank), Massimo Pera (FAO) and Emilio Hernandez (CGAP) that brings together over 10 world renowned experts in Rural and Agricultural Finance to discuss financial inclusion in rural settings from a holistic point of view. Each morning, participants take part in this discussion and debate on different aspects of rural and agricultural finance, the lessons learned, and the diversity of approaches.
The Rural and Agricultural Finance Program is a highly specialized program offered for experienced rural and agricultural finance practitioners and institutions. The objective of RAFP is to enable inclusive and efficient food and agricultural systems, as well as promote financial inclusion by strengthening the technical capacity of service providers and those institutions serving rural SMEs and smallholder farmers.
