Webinar description

Traditional development has often focused on single silo approaches, engaging in either social development, natural resources management or humanitarian assistance. Unfortunately, at times these mismatched objectives may not provide a clear ladder towards self-sufficiency for vulnerable populations.

Aligning these objectives together, through innovative financial mechanisms, will unlock new ways to fund holistic development approaches.

In this session, guest speakers will reflect on existing financing mechanisms and discuss what other innovative financing solutions are needed to align these objectives and incentives
