The DFI Transparency Initiative team has been undertaking research over the past seven months. So far we have carried out research for two of the five key areas that were identified. On 30th September we will present our findings from the second work stream on impact management – objectives, theories of change and impacts. We presented our findings from the first work stream on the transparency of basic project information in July with a working paper and webinar.
Achieving developmental impact is a central mandate of DFIs, setting them apart from commercial institutions. The development contribution of DFIs is seen as a critical component in achieving the sustainable development goals. This work stream seeks to understand the ways in which DFIs predict, measure, and disclose impact. Our work interrogates the processes informing, and the disclosure of, both ex-ante impact predictions and ex-post results monitoring and evaluation.
We started the research on this work stream in May 2020. We conducted interviews with a range of stakeholders and produced a landscape analysis on the disclosure of impact management by DFIs. In July 2020 we convened the Expert Working Group with representatives from DFIs, think tanks, CSOs and the private sector who provided further insight and gave us feedback on our findings.
We invite you to join our webinar, which provides the opportunity both for us to present the findings from our second work stream and for you to also engage with our work and ask us questions about our initiative.
This webinar will also be accompanied with a working paper detailing the findings, which we will send beforehand to those who have registered for the event.
