Our Client’s Situation:
UNDP recognized the importance of developing the African Impact Investing Sector and needed a partner to help them explore the trends, challenges and opportunities for Impact Investment in Africa into the future.
GreaterImpact developed an Impact Investment ecosystem framework to contextualize the current landscape and to highlight the biggest barriers and opportunities in the Impact Investment sector. Our approach included desk-based literature reviews, stakeholder interviews and validations, research analysis and case studies. The report also featured evidence-based examples of successful impact ventures and practices.
The creation of an Impact Investment in Africa report which catalogued the different types of activity suited to different actors.
