Integration and resilience are core transition qualities that the EBRD seeks to promote through investment and engagement in its regions. This high-level panel will bring together Governors from EBRD shareholder countries and other prominent speakers to discuss connectivity in an increasingly uncertain world. The session will address the geopolitical challenges resulting from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which has had a significant impact on central Asia and all EBRD regions. It will cover both the immediate impact on agriculture, food, energy security and affected populations and the longer-term implications for the delivery of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and a greener, more inclusive digital future.
