This report provides objectives and recommendations for governments in developing the ecosystems which are crucial to the development of impact investment as a powerful force.
Recognising there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach, policy makers need to consider their own context and the policy opportunities that suit their particular environment, their policy priorities and the existing nature of social service provision.
