About Us


Under the umbrella of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Emerging Markets Sustainability Dialogues (EMSD) provide a network of stakeholders 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.

Direct to EMSD

The Emerging Markets Dialogue on Finance (EMDF) represents one of the three EMSD networks. EMDF brings together high-level emerging market stakeholders from financial institutions, banks and private investors, stock exchanges, central banks, ministries of finance, and international organizations. It strives to enhance the capacity of financial institutions and government bodies in emerging markets to advance the development of a sustainable financial sector. Jointly with our partners, we develop solutions for some of the most pressing challenges in the financial sector, complementing existing processes such as the G20 meetings on a working level.
