Development Impact Framework Engagement

FinDev Canada’s Development Impact Framework was open for stakeholder comments in May and June 2018. We received more than 145 comments from over 30 different organizations and individuals, and the organizations represented a range of stakeholder types, including non-governmental organizations / civil society, development finance institutions (DFIs) and impact investors, the private sector, academic and research institutions, and multilateral and government agencies.  We are grateful to those stakeholders who took time to provide thoughtful feedback to our impact approach.
