The Impact Programme is a catalytic intervention in a large and diverse environment. The intervention's intended outcomes and impact are therefore dependent on a number of external factors, including:
Local and regional policy and regulatory environments
Wider investment conditions
Public perceptions of impact investment
The Impact Programme is not structured to influence these factors directly, however three practices are embedded throughout the programme lifecycle in order to ensure responsiveness and effective coordination:
Broader market research
Continuous stakeholder engagement through Programme partners
Capacity building support for Fund Managers and companies
The Impact Investment Market in Sub Saharan Africa and South Asia in 2013
