    Innovative Development Financing

    C4D Explorer

      I found the following article on innovative development financing at McKinsey & Company interesting given our discussions about metropolitan financing and governance:


      Innovative development financing | McKinsey & Company


      The article notes that "Four ideas rose to the top when we screened our list based on the size of the opportunity (for example, the ability to unlock a meaningful level of additional financing or to meaningfully engage multiple actors), the technical feasibility of implementation within a short- to medium-term time frame, the potential to gain significant political momentum, and the existence of a clear and compelling role for government: unlocking value from diaspora flows, stimulating private-capital flows, encouraging private voluntary contributions through matching funds, and tackling sector-specific inefficiencies."


      What do you think about these ideas? Do you think they can be used for metropolitan planning?


      Best, Nicolas
