The COVID19 pandemic revealed the importance that access to digital technologies, and good quality data has for development, and accelerated the pace of digital adoption. Despite progress, emerging/ developing markets still lag behind in digital connectivity, availability of investment capital and tech talent. The WBG's new Green, Resilient, and Inclusive Development approach, in alignment with the EU Green Deal, is increasing efforts for a climate-responsive, inclusive and sustainable recovery and reconstruction. The session will draw on the experience of IFC and GFDRR in partnering with key European partners, to catalyze investments, enable linkages between investors, experts, businesses and the public sector, build skills and reduce the knowledge gap in the sector in emerging markets.
