#2 Why Multilateralism Matters

"The future we want, the United Nations we need: reaffirming our collective commitment to multilateralism"--one of the critical themes of this year's UN General Assembly, marking the 75th anniversary of the UN. From confronting the COVID-19 pandemic to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, multilateralism is an irreplaceable element of success. UNCDF's commitment to multilateralism is reflected in its partnership with the European Union in many workstreams of sustainable development; and in particular, driving youth financial inclusion in the world's poorest and least developed countries.

This episode of Capital Musings features a roundtable discussion of thought and practice leaders from UNCDF and the European Union, describing in detail how we are collaborating in five least developed countries to support financial inclusion for youth; in the process, demonstrating the power and importance of multilateralism as we enter the Decade of Action for implementation of the SDGs.
