Private investment, public money: evaluating development impact

1 April 2016, 10:30 - 13.30
Overseas Development Institute and online

How can those who hold the public purse strings ensure that public money directed towards leveraging the private sector in developing countries is spent well? How can public oversight of donors’ investment activities strike the right balance between realism and high standards of accountability?

The event will consist of two sessions – in the first session we will hear from those who invest public money in private projects, and the firms that receive such investments; the second will discuss oversight and evaluation in the light of the first session.

If you have any questions about this event, please email s [dot] parkeratodi [dot] org [dot] uk

The event will be followed by a networking lunch.
