EMSD is a network of change agents and decision makers from think tanks, multinational corporations, and the financial sector. Our members jointly develop and implement solutions for sustainable economic development in emerging economies through consultation, dialogue, and research. We bring these solutions into national and international fora, contributing to the global sustainability transition and the protection of global public goods.
The sustainable development of the world economy, financial stability and the protection of public goods are at the forefront of today’s global challenges. Countries and the global community struggle to define standards for the quality of growth, both in ecological and social respects that help increase well-being.
Emerging economies are at the core of those challenges: By increasingly engaging in global processes, their policy decisions and economic and financial trajectories are bound to have major global implications. Through their increasing engagement and weight in global processes, they have a tangible impact on successful outcomes. At the same time, their domestic economies and policies are influenced by and need to adapt to global developments and international standards and regimes.
The Emerging Market Sustainability Dialogues seek to open up new and strengthen already existing channels for cooperation and dialogue between emerging and industrialised economies on sustainable policy, business, and finance.
The Emerging Market Sustainability Dialogues (EMSD) network comprises the Economic Policy Forum (EPF), the Emerging Market Multinationals (EMM) Network for Sustainability, and the Emerging Markets Dialogue Financial Sector (EMDF).
Emerging Market Sustainability Dialogues (EMSD)
EMSD comprises three dialogue platforms and networks, fostering knowledge exchange and creation between diverse actors from emerging and industrialised economies. The Economic Policy Forum (EPF), the Emerging Market Multinationals (EMM) Network for Sustainability and the Emerging Markets Dialogue Financial Sector (EMDF) seek to contribute to innovative economic policy making, sustainable business development, and financial stability/green finance. Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH facilitates and supports these three platforms in a coordinating and secretarial role.
Emerging Market Multinationals (EMM) Network for Sustainability
The Emerging Market Multinationals Network for Sustainability (EMM Network) is a swiftly growing network of leading sustainability managers and executives of multinational companies that are based or operating in emerging economies. Jointly, they work on developing and implementing progressive sustainability and environmental standards, and turning them into successful business solutions that benefit the companies, their customers, stakeholders, and the environment. The EMM network ensures that the insight from these business solutions feeds into global fora and processes such as the OECD, G20, World Economic Forum, etc.
Economic Policy Forum (EPF)
EPF is a growing global network of the world’s leading political economy think tanks from emerging and industrial economies, such as the BRICS, Mexico, Indonesia, Turkey, Vietnam and other countries. Its strategy and policy papers are produced for governments and national policy-makers to inform national and international policy processes. In this vein, EPF has been contributing to the BRICS Academic Forum, the official track-II coordinators of the annual BRICS summit. It also works on specific socio-economic themes for the G20, and has fed its policy proposals and research findings into the COP21 and Munich Security Conference. Its goal is to better inform domestic and global economic policies with evidence-based policy recommendations.
Emerging Markets Dialogue on Finance (EMDF)
The Emerging Markets Dialogue on Finance brings together emerging market stakeholders from ministries of finance, central banks, stock exchanges, private investors, or international organizations such as the G20 Financial Stability Board. Jointly, they develop solutions for the most prominent challenges in the financial sector, complementing existing processes such as the BRICS or the G20 meetings on a working level. It strives to enhance the capacity of financial institutions and governmental agencies in emerging markets to advance financial stability, and green growth. Currently, there are two core dialogues being conducted by EMDF, on financial sector stability and on green finance.
