ANIMA Labelling Southern BSOs' Services Workshop - Coordinated strategies to drive investments towards sustainable development


In the framework of EBSOMED, ANIMA Investment Network will implement an Online Workshop on Labelling Southern BSOs' Services "Coordinated strategies to drive investments towards sustainable development", on 28, 29 & 30 April and 5 May 2020 from 10:00 to 11:30 UTC+1.

ANIMA Investment Network conveys its members and partners for a collective creation lab aiming at designing the instruments of its new initiative Impact Invest.

The health crisis that has been raging since the beginning of 2020 shows the weaknesses in the organisation of our societies, our health and social protection, and highlights the limits of the production and economic development models in force in most of our countries.

The investments needed to achieve sustainable development goals in emerging countries are $3.900 bn per year. Today only $1.400 bn per year are mobilized, mainly by the public sector. It is therefore necessary to find the mechanisms and models to align corporate efforts with SDGs.

The Impact Invest initiative makes a practical contribution to the reflections on the new development models emerging around the Mediterranean: it aims at developing mechanisms to align business efforts with SDGs and maximize their positive impacts.

It is promoted by ANIMA with the RIAFPI network, Expertise France and Business France, and capitalises notably on the EDILE initiative on investment impact assessment developed with the label of the Union for the Mediterranean.

This project lab benefits from the support of the European Commission through the EBSOMED project, as well as the German Development Cooperation and the Region Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur. EBSOMED aims at promoting the Mediterranean business support ecosystems and is a spinoff of the EMIPO initiative also labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.

It comprises:

  • An opening webinar on Tuesday 28th April, during which the initiators of Impact Invest will present their intentions and present partners who have developed interesting approaches tackling the ambitions of the initiative.
  • Three collective intelligence workshops during which a limited number of partners are invited to design the instruments and tools of the Impact Invest initiative's action plan.

The results of this co-construction work will be presented during a face-to-face workshop, scheduled for September 22nd if the sanitary conditions allow meetings in an international framework.
