The United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the Governments of the Republic of Malawi and the Kingdom of the Netherlands are pleased to invite you to the launch of the report ‘Blended Finance in the Least Developed Countries 2019’. The launch event takes place on the sidelines of the High-level Political Forum.
The report being launched, the second in a collaboration between the UNCDF and OECD, outlines the latest trends in blended finance approaches in LDCs. It updates the previous 2018 report with the latest available data from the OECD, which now cover the six years from 2012 through 2017. It also features seven guest pieces by practitioners and experts working in the blended finance space, which showcase the opportunities and challenges of applying blended finance solutions in LDCs. The report concludes with a review of the next steps for the blended finance and development communities, and flags some emerging issues revealed in the report.
