Blog » [Archived Webinar] Social Impact Bonds: Addressing Gaps to Solving Social Issues
This webinar series introduces innovative financing mechanisms that contribute to development solutions, linking needs, objectives and actual results. This series will focus on Results-based financing (RBF), in particular, which has emerged as an important tool for financing basic services because it changes the focus from inputs – funding given in advance for expected results – to verified outputs. As a center of expertise for RBF, the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) brings together practitioners and development partners to share results, experiences and lessons on RBF.
Social Impact Bonds: Addressing Gaps to Solving Social Issues”, the first webinar in the series, will explore the financial instrument as a potential model that addresses weaknesses of traditional approaches in solving social issues, and some examples from implementation. As a RBF instrument, impact bonds tie financial returns and payments to social outcomes. Their design brings private sector investment to programs that are not profit-centered but produce social benefits. Have a questions? Ask it >>here
