dc.description.abstractGovernments can leverage private capital for societal objectives by supporting impact investment. Impact investments are investments made with the intention to generate positive, measurable social and environmental impact alongside a financial return. An enabling policy environment helps to attract more funds to impact investment, to grow impact-oriented businesses, and to facilitate the match between supply and demand. <br><br> This report is targeted at policymakers and ecosystem players, such as representative bodies of impact investors or impact businesses. It introduces a conceptual framework for impact investment policies along with examples from the region. It aims to provide a basis for dialogue among policymakers as well as with ecosystem stakeholders to foster cross-learning and to promote policy actions that nurture the impact investment ecosystem across the countries of the region.
