About this event

The time is ripe for impact investing in the Pacific Islands, home to some of the world’s most unique ecologies and high-value products, untapped informal sector creativity, and burgeoning entrepreneurs innovating through traditional patterns of climate and community resilience. Gender lens investing has the potential to precipitate significant social and economic gains. Although the Pacific Islands are ranked among the world’s lowest for women’s economic opportunities, women play a significant economic role, being responsible for the majority of food production in Papua New Guinea (worth $55m in total), 40% of micro-enterprises in Samoa, and 90% of market activity in the Solomon Islands’ Honiara Central Market (worth $10-16m in total).

Join IIX and Pacific RISE for a live discussion on impact investing in the Pacific, the role of gender lens investing in driving growth and current investment opportunities.
