To the attention of Mrs. Helene H. Oord (Worldview Mission) : Invitation to the III Plus Europe Conference in May in Madrid

Dear Madam, It is a pleasure to invite you to the III Plus Europe Conference, sponsored by La Caixa, to be held on the 16th and 17th of May 2016 at the CaixaForum Madrid. Plus Europe is an association of citizens and entrepreneurs, committed to and working towards streamlining the European Union by offering a new model of governance based on mutual respect between citizens and the different levels of government in Europe. You will find more information on our website www.pluseurope.org. Our first Conference took place at the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce on the 1st of February 2013. The second conference took place in Brussels on the 12th and 13th of May 2014. At the following link you can have a look at a short video: http://pluseurope.org/?page_id=53&lang=en. As you will see in the attached provisional agenda, we are working on two distinct issues: On Monday, May 16th, we are going to discuss future EU policies on water and what businesses and citizens can do to help in a systematic and efficient way to less developed countries by virtue of water purification equipment. On Tuesday May 17 we are going to discuss issues of European governance with current issues such as the promotion of youth employment, the Banking Union as well as alternative forms of financing of companies under the umbrella of the Capital Markets Union (CMU). We are also going to discuss new relations between companies offering jobs on the one hand and micro-companies and freelancers on the other, aiming at breaking with the classic paradigm of employment. We are finalizing the list of speakers for each subject. Soon we will send the final programme with the names of speakers from the Commission, the European Parliament as well as of distinctive academics and business individuals. We would greatly appreciate if you saved the dates and register on our website using the following link: http://pluseurope.org/?post_type=product&lang=es. We are looking forward to seeing you in Madrid and remain. with warm regards, Clemens Rosenmayr

The session will identify and discuss actions to provide a ‘speedway’ to energy access.

Presentation areas:  
The context of the ‘need for speed’ in the delivery of policy and finance solutions to accelerate the delivery of energy access will open the session.
Three specific areas will be presented:

●        The Access Investment Model (AIM) – a World Bank tool to assist governments and other stakeholders in modelling the cost of multi-tiered energy access plans;

●        The Sustainable Access Energy Forum – a multi stakeholder approach to strengthening the enabling environment around investments, planning, policy and regulation, aimed at improving decision-making;

●        The “Billion Dollar Opportunity” – presenting a portfolio of investment and financing opportunities in energy access via the Practitioner Network’sinvestment portal.

 Dear Sir/Madam,

Promoting air quality is at the forefront of the sustainable development agenda. Substantially reducing by 2030 the number of deaths and illnesses from hazardous chemicals and air, water and soil pollution and contamination is a key component of SDG 3: “Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”. This global commitment is grounded in the landmark decisions reached at the World Health Assembly in 2015 (Air Pollution and Health) and in 2014 at UNEA-1 (Strengthening the role of the UNEP in promoting air quality). Against this background, UNEP will hold an interactive thematic debate on Air Quality, during the 3rd Annual Subcommittee meeting of the Committee of Permanent Representatives to UNEP on 30 October 2015 between 9am-1pm.

Invitation: The Role of Islamic Finance in the Implementation of the SDGs

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

 
I hope that you would be able to join us for a very special event hosted by the Permanent Observer Mission of the OIC to the United Nations, Islamic Development Bank and UNDP entitled, “The Role of Islamic Finance in the Implementation of the SDGs.”   The event will be held on 26 September 2015 in Conference Room 2 in the Conference Building of the United Nations.
 
Achieving the SDGs will require the international community to unlock substantial new sources of public and private financing. Islamic financial instruments are well suited to address and finance the implementation of many of the SDGs, as they seek to promote social, economic and financial inclusion of the poor and the underserved. With its emphasis on risk-sharing and asset-backed financing, Islamic finance can provide long-term financing solutions to social and economic development through a wide range of financial products including Sukuk (i.e. Islamic bonds) and social welfare tools, including awqaf.
 The objectives of the side-event are to: i) explain the concept of Islamic finance, with special emphasis on how it balances rewards and risks in a fair and transparent manner, and how it links finance with the real economy; and ii) discuss how various components/instruments of Islamic finance could be a transformative force for unlocking resources to finance the SDGs. A moderated panel discussion will include experts from the IsDB, UNDP, the Government of Turkey, and UNESCAP. 

Please RSVP by sending an email to aismail@oicun.org with your name, title and organization. Please indicate whether or not you will be in possession of a valid UN Grounds Pass.

Kindest regards,
Amierah
