The Rockefeller Foundation Supports Impact Investing Policy Research in Africa :: News :: The Rockefeller Foundation

The Rockefeller Foundation through its Impact Investing initiative  is funding research in five sub-Saharan African countries which will contribute to two overarching goals: understanding the policy barriers and enabling environment for impact investing across Africa and recommending national policies to encourage the growth of the industry for the ultimate benefit of poor or vulnerable communities. 

Despite market challenges and a preponderance of development aid, there is a growing regional opportunity for impact investing in Africa. While there is an appreciation of the scale of the multiplier effect impact investing can have, there is a lack of appreciation for the distinction of impact investing against the backdrop of other developmental finance and general private sector development. As a result, the benefits of impact investing are often overlooked and the objectives conflated with all general development finance. This work will forge a deeper and contextualized understanding and eventual application of impact investing as a subset of private sector activity in the respective countries.
