The International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA), a leading global network on best practice of impact assessment, held its virtual 40th annual conference on 18-21 May 2021.
The EIB, a corporate member of the IAIA, contributed to the conference as an institutional partner. We organised the European Forum – a series of four events – focusing on the following topics:
- progress in the climate, environmental and social agenda of European multilateral financial institutions (MFIs) in the light of the latest policy developments,
- best practices in sustainable finance, and
- fostering dialogue around emerging issues in environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) risk management.
We partnered with the European Commission and the EBRD for the European Forum and featured distinguished speakers from a broad range of stakeholders, including financial institutions, impact assessment practitioners, public authorities and academia.
