These programs help members: i) understand the potential of blended finance to support in achieving the SDGs and surface credible investment opportunities in developing countries, ii) build the case internally for blended finance based on the financial and development impact of blended finance to-date, iii) develop a blended finance strategy and approach, and iv) develop the capacity to participate effectively in blended finance transactions, from due diligence to monitoring.
