Development Impact Bond Launch Event

This afternoon marks the culmination of months of effort from the Development Impact Bond Working Group as we launch the consultation of their report. We have convened an exciting panel for the event, which includes Elizabeth Littlefield, President of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation. From the UK we have the Rt. Hon Andrew Mitchell MP, former Secretary of State for International Development and Nick Rouse, Managing Director of Frontier Markets Fund Managers. It promises to be a lively session and I’m delighted to share the agenda with you.
