Pipeline Builder Partnership: Charles Abani Interview
21 September 2022
A balanced, equitable and forward-looking IMF programme, combined with sustained fiscal discipline, will help restore investors' confidence in Ghana - RC
The Pipeline Builder is a partnership between SDG Lab at the United Nations in Geneva and Ground_Up Project, a Swiss-based impact finance advisor. It seeks to streamline and boost financial flows to projects aligned with national sustainable development strategies, and it has been kickstarted in Ghana.
Since the project was launched in late 2019, the global environment has changed dramatically. Still reeling from the pandemic, developing countries are now having to cope with higher borrowing costs, rising prices, slower economic growth and fuel and food disruptions.
Under growing pressure, Ghana has turned to the International Monetary Fund for assistance.
In an interview with SDG Lab, the UN Resident Coordinator for Ghana, Mr. Charles Abani, says a balanced, equitable and forward-looking IMF programme, combined with sustained fiscal discipline, will help restore investors’ confidence.
