2021 Blended Finance & Impact Week


The least developed countries (LDCs) are the furthest from achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) . They are also likely to be hit the hardest by the COVID-19 crisis. Yet too little private finance is mobilised for investment in LDCs. This discussion will discuss blended finance strategies to get more and better finance in LDCs for a resilient COVID-19 recovery, building on the findings of the 2020 OECD/UNCDF report on Blended Finance in LDCs. Moderator: Paul Horrocks, Head of Unit for Private Finance for Sustainable Development, OECD
