Nancy Lee, Director, Sustainable Development Finance, CGD 

The world needs much more private investment in emerging and developing economies to finance the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But we also need credible, robust, and widely accepted standards for measuring the impact of those investments. A group of financial institutions, industry associations, and other stakeholders have produced Impact Disclosure Guidance to help corporations and governments use sound principles of impact measurement and monitoring to attract sustainable pools of capital and to report on development and climate impact. This panel will discuss these new voluntary guidelines and the potential of more robust and transparent impact reporting to mobilize much more private finance at scale.
