The Center for Universal Education at Brookings (CUE), in partnership with Convergence, invites you to the launch event for the report "Impact Bonds in Developing Countries – Early Learnings from the Field." The report documents the experience of a range of stakeholders developing social and development impact bonds in developing countries, and navigates the opportunities, risks, and challenges faced by practitioners in this nascent field, providing a timely update of the state of play.
The first panel will explore these early lessons in more depth, drawing on the experience of practitioners to understand the challenges and opportunities around structuring and launching impact bonds in developing countries. The second panel will focus on the impact bonds in the field of education, learning from the experience of the pioneering Educate Girls impact bond in India.
