Practicing Results-based Finance on the Ground
In the first webinar on innovative finance series, we discussed what innovative finance means, how it can be deployed effectively, the two objectives of innovative finance – increasing efficiency of existing funds vs leveraging additional funds, and addressed some of the myths and perceptions around it.
