The priority of utilizing and leveraging diverse sources of finance – public, private, domestic and international – to achieve the SDGs was an outcome of the 2015 Addis Ababa Action Agenda1. The United Nations Development Programme (“UNDP’) has and continues to develop partnerships with international financial Institutions, the civil society, the private sector, as well as individuals to make this vital blending of financial instruments and sources possible. Clearly, technology and innovation are central to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. When utilized effectively, technology can be mobilized to identify barriers and provide solutions for sustainable development challenges from the local to the global level. Furthermore, the science-policy interface has become an increasingly important component of the UN system, guiding evidence-based sustainable development policy design, implementation, follow-up and review. It has also been integral in identifying emerging needs, drawing links between thematic issues, and devising solutions to address challenges and barriers to progress.
Or above mentioned purpose Impact investment can catalyze additional capital flows into developing economies and stimulate private sector development where this is otherwise absent. By combining various forms of capital with different return requirements, social challenges can be addressed in more scalable ways than what is achievable by the government alone. Government, Development Financial Institutions (DFIs), non-profit and private sector stakeholders have identified a range of SDG-related sectors that would benefit from development capital. These include: agriculture, healthcare, education, power, real estate etc. Impact investors have the opportunity and capacity to provide new ways to allocate public and private capital more efficiently and effectively to these and other relevant sectors, ultimately demonstrating that investment can achieve both a positive social/environmental impact and a financial return.
UNDP Armenia initiated a partnership with a Fund Manager which would establish and manage a private impact investment fund, designed to contribute to the achievement of SDG goals through investments in Armenian and regional (international) impact ventures. To achieve this, the Fund would catalyze funding from both public and private sources to support the SDGs.
