About the programme
Social finance helps provide blended capital to fill the annual UN SDG gap of $2.1 trillion.
Global, systemic challenges as outlined by the UN SDGs (sustainable development goals) demand innovation which traditional financing mechanisms fail to address. Social finance builds a blended capital approach to address issues on a national or international scale.
Solving issues such as climate change, gender equality, and food security requires innovative capital and this is provided by social finance.
