Webinar - "What are we learning from results-based approaches to financing employment outcomes?"

On 9 December 2021, the ILO’s Social Finance Programme organized the webinar “What are we learning from results-based approaches to financing employment outcomes?”.

Over the last decade, results-based financing of development outcomes have multiplied across the world. In particular, employment-related outcomes are the centre of attention: 24 per cent of active impact bonds (one form of results-based financing) are focused on employment and training outcomes in 2021. No other outcome theme attracts more results-based financing.

Presenters: Dr David M. Van Slyke (Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University), Dr Debra Hevenstone (Bern University of Applied Sciences), Dr Alec Fraser (King's College London) and Christian Brändli (Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs). Moderator: Patricia Richter (Senior Technical Officer, the ILO’s Social Finance Programme).
