Investing for Development 2021 General png

EVPA invites you to a new event series on investing for development. Our intention is to give visibility to topics that are critical to the investing for development community, share best practices and to foster the exchange with development (finance) practitioners.

This new series is a combination of open E-talks and EVPA Meet-ups that will provide our members with the opportunity to dive deeper into the topic. We will also join forces with our sister member networks in Asia (AVPN), Africa (AVPA) and Latin America (Latimpacto) for some of the topics. The topics we identified for the investing for development event series in 2021 include:

Topic 1: The role of Investing for Impact in innovative finance

Innovative finance is about both mobilising additional capital to close the signficiant SDG finance gap and about deploying capital more effectively and efficiently using innovative financing mechanism.
