  14. 14. Impact investing: Problem! • Disconnect (Conception to action) • No funding to develop projects • No business acumen at village level • NGO’s have to fill the gap – with no money until the project is funded!
  15. 15. CREATING THE FUTURE: The Solution? In 1970, The 0.7% ODA/GNI target was first agreed and has been repeatedly re-endorsed at the highest level at international aid and development conferences: •in 2005, the 15 countries that were members of the European Union by 2004 agreed to reach the target by 2015
  16. 16. CREATING THE FUTURE: The Solution? http://iif.un.org/content/official-development-assistance
  17. 17. • Governments to increase the levels of ODA to solve the problems - actually deliver on their commitments • The UN to be more accountable for its spending • Change the corporate mind-set: find a way CSR to drive profit to really make a difference? (More funding from the business sector) • Impact Investing - A way forward but solve the funding GAP from concept to inception • Find scalable projects - Lets not reinvent the wheel • Don't forget Time is your most valuable asset - Your Individual Social Responsibility - if we don't give our time then we wont be able to make a difference to the future CREATING THE FUTURE!
