More information: 

The International Development sector is focused on addressing some of the greatest global challenges of our time through cost effective programming and accountable and transparent relationships with the NZ public and Government alike. Currently, however, the sector is confined by limited funding models and a declining donor base leading to tensions of sustainability of outcomes and future financing. While at the same time, communities are seeking greater engagement, voice, and agency in determining their own futures through new ways of development assistance.

Can Impact Investing seize upon the opportunities that exist and provide a way forward for the International Development sector?

And ultimately, how can we understand its place, and new ways of financing development, in the sector?
