Impact Investing for Development Summit 2017
In a constantly changing global climate, international development cannot afford to stay still. According to some estimates, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will cost $172.5 trillion by 2030. This means that as development organizations we need to find new and equally ambitious ways of engaging with donors and funding sources. In short, a paradigm shift is needed.
Impact Investment has gained worldwide traction as a method of solving development problems alongside financial bottom lines. International development organizations recognize the potential of impact investment as a new way of addressing development challenges and scaling up solutions. The question is how to fully realise this potential.
Striving to answer this question, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and knowledge partner INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Initiative invite you to a two-day summit on opportunities and mechanisms to promote impact investment for development.
Location: Yerevan, Armenia
Dates: March 21, 2017 - March 23, 2017
