Social Impact Bonds

January 2018 - December 2019

There have been significant developments in the global capital markets to address sustainable development goals (SDGs) in the last 5 years. Within the bond markets, voluntary guidelines have emerged for social bonds, aimed at attracting investment targeting developmental challenges while also generating market-based returns.

FSD Africa has partnered with the World Wildlife Fund Kenya to develop an innovative approach to financing mechanisms that drive sustainability in conservation areas. The project involves conducting a joint scoping mission to the priority conservation areas of Kenya, exploring and piloting innovative financing approaches in conservation, and collaborating as impact investment and conservation experts.

Targets:

To identify appropriate structures of financing environmental conservation through capital markets, and raising capital for such projects. These are mainly through debt capital markets via social and developmental bonds.
