New podcast episode: Harnessing impact investing for sustainable economic development

Until now, impact investing has seen steady market growth driven by international coalitions and the interests of a handful of global financial giants. That is no longer enough.

In the wake of the coronavirus crisis, which has only worsened global economic and social challenges, impact investing must play a critical role in the recovery if it is to be successful and sustainable. This is especially true for developing countries that are at risk of seeing their progress over the past few decades wiped away. The failure to meet the challenge will be devastating.

Join us for a discussion with Sir Ronald Cohen, Chair of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment, and Dolika Banda, Non Executive Director at CDC and CEO of African Risk Capacity Insurance.

The panel is chaired by Colin Buckley, General Counsel and Head of External Relations at CDC, and Nick O’Donohoe, CEO of CDC Group.
