Introduction to the course

In a challenging financial context where traditional forms of development cooperation are under pressure, complementary approaches to generate additional and sustainable sources of finance to reach development goals are required. A number of financial instruments and mechanisms have emerged to create scalable and effective ways to leverage diverse sources of finance and channel them towards achieving the SDGs. This one-week training course will help to understand the variety and applicability of the financial solutions available for development practitioners and policy makers and explore several of them in greater detail, such as impact investing, blended finance, impact insurance, financial inclusion, green and rural finance instruments, and others
