About this talk

Blended finance and the SDGs: examining how public and private capital can work together for positive societal and financial outcomes The OECD defines blended finance as “the strategic use of development finance for the mobilization of additional finance towards the SDGs in developing countries.” This RI webinar will drill down into key areas of the blended finance discussion. If achieving the SDGs requires a massive infrastructure build-out to provide clean water and sanitation (SDG6), affordable and clean energy (SDG7), and health centres and hospitals in urban and rural areas (SDG3), how can the blended finance of public and private money actually do this, and through what structures/terms? Expert speakers will present case studies on the integration of blended finance structures into existing investment strategies and explain how it can yield a positive return both for investors and communities. Speakers Sharon Spiegel, Chief, Policy Analysis & Development Branch, Financing for Sustainable Development Office, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, United Nations Mafalda Duarte, Director, Climate Investment Funds Ladé Araba, Managing Director, Africa Region, Convergence Jennifer Pryce, President and CEO, Calvert Impact Capital Moderated by Vibeka Mair, Responsible Investor
