The goal of the workshop is to further support the application and use of the OECD Blended Finance Principles and allow for the scaling up and further mainstreaming of blended finance. The focus will be on best practices and how these are applied in the context of the Principles.

DCD and Convergence have agreed to collaborate on activities aimed at providing DAC member countries blended finance knowledge solutions in several events as part of the OECD Blended Finance work plan in 2018.
