The main objective of this Capstone project is to examine the key challenges/barriers impact investors face to invest in and/or expand into emerging and frontier markets and realize the full potential of impact investing for the SDGs. According to a GIIN Investor Impact Survey, more than half of investment is concentrated in North America and European markets. Overall, more surveyed investors plan to increase funds proportionally more in developing and emerging markets like Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Based on the analysis, the Capstone project will make specific recommendations on what role international development organization can play to address some of the key barriers to impact investment and help countries access additional financing for the SDGs. The lessons and feedback from the industry players will be valuable for development agencies as it refines its role and offer in this area.
