World Bank Group to Launch MOOC on Financing for Development After UN Summit Adoption

Posted By Rohan Munsif, Friday, October 30, 2015

The World Bank Group is launching a Financing for Development MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on November 16. A function of this course is to facilitate increased awareness about new global goals, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted at a UN Summit in September of this year.  These SDGs will require trillions of dollars over the next 15 years and welcome investments of all kinds- “public and private, national and global, in both capital and capacity”.


The objective of this MOOC is to familiarize more people with the new development agenda, the critical role of the private sector, and the use of finance to fund the SDG. It aims to meet the goals of ending poverty and boost shared prosperity by 2030. It will be a four-week course including lectures from prominent government, international organizations, and private sector leaders who have experience in implementing development projects and combining private-public collaborations.


Participants will learn from an array of educational vehicles including video presentations, core readings, discussion boards, Google Hangouts, Twitter chats and other interactive features. This course will educate participants on financing the new development agenda. It is a great way to spread knowledge on the global development agenda and has the potential to make a huge difference in garnering support and financing for the developing world.
