Webinar on Social Investment in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)
Social challenges are larger than ever and social investment is a powerful source of growth and innovation for tackling them. In addition, social investments provide significant returns on investment and multiplier effects, by simultaneously impacting positively people’s well-being and social cohesion. However, the current social investment ecosystem could still be strengthened and scaled up, including namely in emerging and developing countries, as many in LAC. Despite recent efforts, the ecosystem remains indeed limited, given its low scale of operation and lack of innovative market models and financial resources, and is incomplete due to the few public and private participants. This Webinar on social investment will therefore consider topics ranging from defining what we understand as social investment, to sharing experiences and good practices to discussing methodologies for measuring social impact.
