How Blended Finance reaches the Poorest People

Reducing poverty and improving equity
Posted Nov 12, 2019 | Development Initiatives, Cecilia Caio

As the gap between the poorest people and the rest continues to widen, the international development community is seeking additional finance to reduce poverty as set out in the Sustainable Development Goals. Private sector actors are intended to be the source of such finance, also through blended finance. In this discussion paper by Development Initiatives, Cecilia Caio assesses the theories of change put forward by twelve key blended finance actors and 56 development finance institutions, multilateral development banks and donor agencies involved in blending. She finds gaps in logic and transparency. Before scaling up investments, the assumptions around enabling its impact must be addressed.
