Convergence offers members a range of blended finance learning and capacity building programs. These programs help members: i) understand the potential of blended finance to support in achieving the SDGs and surface credible investment opportunities in developing countries, ii) build the case internally for blended finance based on the financial and development impact of blended finance to-date, iii) develop a blended finance strategy and approach, and iv) develop the capacity to participate effectively in blended finance transactions, from due diligence to monitoring.
Bespoke blended finance trainings and knowledge exchanges are also available for organizations to increase their knowledge of blended finance. Sessions are catered to organization needs and interests and include participation from industry experts and other Convergence members. Past sessions took place at AfDB & OECD.

VIRTUAL SEMINAR SERIES
To ensure that we continue to build the capacity of our network, Convergence has launched a series of interactive virtual training seminars on various blended finance related topics. While our first series looked at blended finance archetypes, the second series examined the application of blended finance across specific sectors. Our next series will start in June 2021 – stay tuned for an announcement in May. Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed.
