SAIIA Oxfam Roundtable: Sustainable Development and the BRICS’ New Development Bank


It is vital that the NDB develops an inclusive approach of sustainable development in order to differentiate from its more traditional competitors. To this end, SAIIA and Oxfam have reviewed the perspectives of a broad range of stakeholders in South Africa on how South Africa should define sustainable development, including what the key elements/ characteristics of sustainable development projects are; and what projects the Bank should support/ fund from a South African perspective. The study and findings were presented at a Roundtable on 2 March 2016.
