kNOWLEDGE SHARING PANEL | JAPAN STAGE

HOST: UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME & INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND

The disruption and devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the inter-dependencies and connectedness of our economy, society and the environment. While the deadly pandemic left millions jobless, we have seen the worst crash of the stock market last March followed by a massive injection by central banks and later a stock market boom in the US and others in a short period of time. As we start to bounce back from the pandemic, it is clear that our growth trajectory was not sustainable and we must find a way to balance our financial system with economic, social and environmental outcomes. We are now at a turning point for people and our planet, and our financial system must be on the same page to deliver the SDGs, which have been subjected to a drastic setback due to the pandemic. In 2020, UNDP established SDG Impact, a common framework for the investors and enterprises to measure, manage and communicate the SDG contribution in a consistent and transparent manner. Despite the global recession, growing interest in sustainable investing is a clear sign that the investors and enterprises also recognize the need for a system change. The IMF is integrating climate change risks into its core activities of macroeconomic policy advice, capacity development and lending in recent years, and now advocates more sustainable finance and a greener recovery from the pandemic. After an introduction by the IMF on the economic outlook of our world beyond COVID-19, a panel discussion with the experts in sustainable finance will envisage how we should turn around our financial system for an sustainable future. What is the role of finance in the face of climate change? What are some practical ways to aim for a financial system to align with the SDGs and green recovery? We welcome investors and enterprises interested in ESG investment and green recovery as well as those interested in learning more about the issue, especially youth, to join this stimulating discussion.

新型コロナウイルスによって引き起こされた混乱は、私たちの社会、経済や環境がいかにつながっていたかをあらためて浮き彫りにしました。株式市場は今世紀最悪の暴落を経験後、中央銀行による資本注入が行われ、短期間で株高ブームが起こっています。私たちの成長戦略が持続可能ではなかったのは明らかであり、コロナ禍からの復興を果たすには、社会、経済、環境と金融システムのバランスをとる方法を早急に見つけなければなりません。
人間と地球はいま、転換期を迎えています。パンデミックで大幅な後退を余儀なくされているSDGsを実現するためには、サステナブル・ファイナンス(持続可能な金融システム)が必要です。国連開発計画(UNDP)は2020年、SDGs達成につながる投資や事業のガイドラインや世界基準を策定し、それに適合した投資や事業を認証する取り組みとして「SDGインパクト」を発表しました。経済が厳しい状況なのにも関わらず、ESG投資などサステナブル・ファイナンスに関心が高まっている事実は、投資家や企業もシステム変革の必要性を認識していることを明確に示しています。IMFでは近年、気候変動に伴うリスクを加味したマクロ経済政策の助言や技術支援、融資を展開しており、サステナブル・ファイナンスをさらに推進しています。
このセッションでは、まず国際通貨基金(IMF)の専門家がコロナ後の経済展望をご紹介。その後、サステナブル・ファイナンスの専門家らが持続可能な未来のために、金融システムがどうあるべきかを議論します。気候変動危機におけるファイナンスの役割とは?SDGsやグリーン・リカバリー(緑の復興)に沿った金融システムをつくるために必要な具体的な取り組みとは? ESG投資やグリーン・リカバリーに関心のある投資家や企業の方から学生まで、サステナブル・ファイナンスについてもっと知りたい皆様のご参加をお待ちしております。

hunger goal 2

https://globalfestivalofaction.org/class/a-world-without-hunger/?wcs_timestamp=1616667300

KNOWLEDGE SHARING PANEL | JAPAN STAGE

HOST: WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME & FOOD AND AGRICULTURE ORGANIZATION OF THE UNITED NATIONS

The session, “A World Without Hunger” will focus on multi-sectoral initiatives and efforts towards achieving SDG 2 on zero hunger. After decades of steady decline, the number of people suffering from hunger has been on the rise since 2014. Current estimates show that around 690 million people are suffer from hungry, and if the current trend continues, this number would rise to 840 million by 2030. Man-made conflicts, climate change and economic downturns, coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, are exposing more people to the perils of hunger. To tackle the challenge, various actors are implementing emergency food assistance and long-term initiatives to save and change the lives of people. Moderated by the World Food Programme, this session is aimed at sharing knowledge and efforts and good practices to combat hunger by actors from multiple sectors in the field.

Experiences of emergency food assistance for people affected by conflicts, floods and economic crisis in Sudan and other countries will be shared by Mr. Itaru Furuta, Head of Field Office Damazine, Sudan, who has served in various duty stations including Yemen and Myanmar. Mr. Sean Kerrigan, National Director of World Vision Rwanda, a WFP partner, will introduce the organization’s initiatives to achieve SDG2 in the country, including the Home Grown School Feeding programme. Ms. Suzanna Sumkhuu, Head of Development Policy and Planning Division, the National Development Agency of Mongolia, will showcase initiatives implemented in partnership with the Food and Agriculture Organization to ensure sustainable food production with smart agriculture. The session will provide a venue to deepen understanding about global hunger and discuss latest efforts and challenges ahead. The speakers will also share experiences and ideas to overcome challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

セッション1「飢餓のない世界」では飢餓をゼロにのSDG2を達成するための多分野の取り組みに焦点を当てます。数十年飢餓人口は減少傾向にありましたが2014年より世界の飢餓人口は再び増加しています。現在約6億9000万人が飢餓に苦しんでおり、現在の傾向が続けば2030年には飢餓人口は約8億4000万人に達すると予測されています。紛争や気候変動、貧困に加え新型コロナウイルスの蔓延によって多くの人が飢餓にさらされています。同時に国際機関、NGO、政府といった様々な分野のアクターが緊急食料支援や長期にわたる取り組みを通して命を救い、影響を受けた人の人生に変化をもたらしています。当セッションでは様々なアクターによる現場での飢餓と闘う取り組みや好事例を共有します。WFPパートナーのワールドビジョンからはショーン・ケリガンルワンダ事務所ディレクターが現地の給食提供を中心に、同団体がルワンダでSDG2達成のために行っている取り組みを紹介。モンゴル開発庁のスザンナ・スムクウ開発政策、計画部長からは、FAOとの連携を通じた、スマート農業による持続可能な食料生産の取り組みについて紹介します。このセッションでは世界の飢餓や最新の取り組み、また課題について理解を深めるとともにコロナ禍での困難を乗り越えるための活動やアイディアについても共有、議論する場を提供します。
