FROM BUZZ TO PRACTICE – HOW TO IMPACT INVEST AND WHY IN AFRICA?

Is there a difference between ‘Impact investments’ and contributing to the SDGs through private sector? Is it possible to both create jobs, create sustainable businesses, leap frog, have a positive impact and do it all in Africa? And not least – how to go from ‘Impact investment’ as a buzzword to implementing it in practice? This is what we want to look at during this mini-seminar. The seminar will be held both in Norwegian and in English.
