    Central Asian and Caucasus Microfinance Forum

    The concept of Microfinance was introduced about 35 years ago. However, now it is not just a poverty reduction tool but a foundation for further financial sector development in developing countries. At present, the sector is facing significant changes:

    • new products are being developed and launched by MFIs (microfinance institutions)
    • more and more traditional financial institutions, such as banks and credit unions are getting involved in microfinance
    • local authorities are developing and tuning up regulations in order to facilitate and speed up further financial sector development
    •  microfinance is seen as a reliable sector for private equity investments

    For the 8th consecutive year, we at Uniglobal are committed to continue with the tradition of bringing on board a unique network of experts and senior level speakers who will share their experiences & perspectives on current and future trends and challenges in microfinance despite the difficult economic climate and ongoing changes in regulation.

    Event will gather together development organizations, banks, specialized microfinance institutions, foundations, and responsible investment managers. The participants will discuss transparency, regulations, transformation of MF industry, social reporting standards, investment, risk and asset management, and innovation from a different angle (senior top level speakers that will bring lessons learned in order to derive applicable solutions)

    International Conference on Sustainable Development

    The International Conference on Sustainable Development is organized by the European Center of Sustainable Development in collaboration with CIT University.

    The 6th ICSD 2018 is inspired from the critical challenge of human, environmental, and economic sustainability concerning the present and future generations in a global-scale context.

    The Conference venue is:  Roma Eventi, Congress Center, Piazza della Pilotta, 4, Rome, Italy

    The Conference theme is:

    “Creating a unified foundation for the Sustainable Development: research, practice and education”.

    This theme emphasizes the strong foundation that is provided by using research to inform our everyday practices, policies, and analytical approaches.

    The 2018 Conference will once again provide a forum for the sharing of ideas, presentation of research findings, and discussion of professional issues relevant to Sustainability Science.

    This ambition will proceed in a multidisciplinary way across the various fields and perspectives, through which we can address the fundamental and related questions of Sustainable Development. This interdisciplinary forum is for scholars, teachers, and practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest in—and concern for— sustainability in an holistic perspective, where environmental, cultural, economic and social concerns intersect.

    Global Climate Action Summit

    The Global Climate Action Summit will bring leaders and people together from around the world to “Take Ambition to the Next Level.” It will be a moment to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of states, regions, cities, companies, investors and citizens with respect to climate action.

    It will also be a launchpad for deeper worldwide commitments and accelerated action from countries—supported by all sectors of society—that can put the globe on track to prevent dangerous climate change and realize the historic Paris Agreement.

    The decarbonization of the global economy is in sight. Transformational changes are happening across the world and across all sectors as a result of technological innovation, new and creative policies and political will at all levels.

    States and regions, cities, businesses and investors are leading the charge on pushing down global emissions by 2020, setting the stage to reach net zero emissions by midcentury.​​

    Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit 2018

    GYEO Summit organizers subsidize a portion of the costs of participation through year-round sponsorship fundraising. Doing so enables us to keep our pricing tiers low and encourage participation from a diverse range of participants from around the world.

    Since 2007, the GYEO Summit has operated on a demand-driven and sustainable basis, thanks to the hundreds of organizations and individuals who co-invest in the Summit through the contribution of financial and in-kind resources each year.

    Experts come to the Summit to increase the impact, scale and sustainability of their youth economic opportunities programming, policies, and partnerships.

    The 2017 Summit theme was, “The Future of Work: Youth Economic Opportunities in a Changing World.” Supported by four interconnected technical tracks, the agenda featured plenary discussions, interactive breakout and training sessions, and side convenings. Together, we explored what the future of work holds for young people in developing contexts, and for professionals working to expand youth social and economic inclusion in a changing world of work.
