“The unprecedented global pandemic has presented major public health challenges,” said His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam of the Shia Ismaili Muslims and Founder of the Aga Khan Development Network. “We require continued collaborative energy from governments, civil society institutions, and the private sector to overcome this crisis, protect life, and build for the future from a position of strength and wisdom. I am pleased that the Aga Khan Development Network and the Paris Peace Forum are working closely towards these goals.”
As a Founding Member of the Paris Peace Forum, the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) is pleased to participate in the Third Edition of the Forum taking place on 11-13 November 2020. This year’s Forum is being held online, allowing for more than 10,000 participants, including heads of state and government, leaders from civil society and the private sector, and global experts, to come together to address better the health and socio-economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. This year’s Forum also includes a Finance in Common Summit, bringing together 450 Public Development Banks from around the world to assess how they can leverage financial flows to tackle the current pandemic and contribute further to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
