Microlinks Seminar - Paying for results: a new approach to mobilizing finance for development
- 17 Dec 2015
- Washington, DC and online via webinar
What does a smallholder farmer looking to buy a $750 walking tractor and a multinational company looking to build a $500 million power generation plant in Africa share in common? They both need access to financing in order to make those investments. This month’s Microlinks seminar will explore new ways to facilitate the flow of private capital to support development goals. The seminar will discuss a working paper from the Center for Global Development on the effectiveness of different models for stimulating private capital. We will also cover new innovations in Development Impact Bonds. And, we will present a promising approach in Ghana using pay-for-performance incentives to stimulate loans and investment in agricultural value chains--with some eye-opening results.
Join us December 17 at 9:00 AM to see how these approaches can be incorporated into programming and project design. The seminar will also be available online via webinar. Speakers: Lawrence Camp, USAID Amanda Fernandez, CARANA Corporation Theo Talbot, Center for Global Development Adam Bornstein, USAID Global Development Lab
