Impact for Breakfast: “Investing in Children’s Rights and wellbeing”
As usual, we convene in an informal setting to explore social investor perspectives on issues of global development, blended finance and shared practical experience. As we all know, global philanthropic funds, when combined with the development/aid budgets of governments, add up to billions of dollars. At the same time, the cost of solving the world’s most critical problems runs estimated into the trillions (per year) in the run up to our 2030 SDG targets. Private capital is thus urgently needed to fill this gap and address pressing global challenges.
This session will consider the world of socially responsible investment and explore how it relates to impact investing and the potential roles organizations like UNICEF could play. Part of the presentation will include UNICEF’s investor guidance and discussion re: what actions may be encouraged to support impact investors and private/public sector to maximize positive impact and results for children at scale.
