The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) would like to invite you to the webinar 'Have we learnt the lessons of the Covid-19 crisis? Investing in more and better social infrastructure for inclusive, resilient and sustainable societies' on Thursday, 30 September 2021 from 14:30 to 16:00 (CEST)
Growing social inequalities and chronic underinvestment in public infrastructure reinforce each other in increasing the vulnerability of societies and economies to unexpected shocks. Earlier this year, European leaders reaffirmed at the Porto Social Summit that the recovery must be sustainable, inclusive and fair, while infrastructure is currently a top priority of the G20.
Bridging critical social infrastructure gaps to ensure equitable access to high-quality and affordable essential services for all remains one of the most effective ways to promote social cohesion and integration. The session will take stock of the social infrastructure gap, with a special focus on Europe, make the case for the prioritisation and scaling up of financing in support of social sustainability objectives.

The history of BGK dates back to 1924 when the President of the Republic of Poland, at the initiative of then Prime Minister and Treasury Minister Wladyslaw Grabski, issued a decree establishing BGK. It was created by a merger of three public banks (the Polish National Bank, the State Reconstruction Bank and the Credit Institution of Malopolska Cities.)

The recording of PPPs “on” or “off” the balance sheet of governments under the European systems of account is a topic that has attracted increased attention over the past few years. In response to PPP stakeholders’ calls, the European PPP Expertise Centre (EPEC, part of the EIB’s advisory services) and Eurostat have worked together to produce a practitioners’ guide on the topic. The guide has been developed with a desire to bring clarity and improve the understanding of how the rules used by Eurostat on PPPs are applied in practice.
EPEC and Eurostat invite you to the presentation of the guide which will take place in the afternoon of 29 September in Brussels (the precise timing, location and detailed agenda will be communicated at a later date). The presentation will be followed by a questions & answers session. Overall, the event is expected to last for about 1.5 hours.
