Making Innovative Finance Practicable in India

In recent years, significant strides have been made towards improving global social outcomes across access to health, education, and better livelihoods, thanks to the efforts of multiple actors including governments, foundations and global donors. Yet a lot more needs to be done in order to achieve the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Innovative finance promises to play a key role in helping mobilize additional capital and achieving greater change with the current public and donor financing.
