AVPN APF May Webinar: How City Governments Mobilise Private Capital for Greater Impact: Seoul and Kobe City

Across Asia, policy makers and governments in different markets are looking for more effective ways to collaborate across sectors and mobilise more capital and innovation to solve some of the most challenging and intractable social issues. “Crowding in” private sector capital is challenging, when there is much field building work to do on creating awareness, establishing a track record, and building a safe space for innovation and experimentation.  This is never more relevant than today, where the Pay-For-Success funding model has captured the imaginations of many city and national governments and private sector funders in Asia.

Heard from AVPN members Pan-Impact Koreas Mr. Kang Hyun-il, and The Nippon Foundation‘s Mr. Shigeru Fujita, who were important organisations in the launch of two early Social Impact Bonds in Asia.

This AVPN webinar invited Pan-Impact Korea and Nippon Foundation to:

  • Share how the SIBs came to be;
  • Explore how the respective city governments work to mobilise cross-sector capital;
  • Introduce AVPN Asia Policy Forum’s upcoming Case Study Report: Pay-For-Success Models in Asia Pacific: The Early Movers.
