A How-To Guide for Blended Finance

"[This guide] explains the Blended Finance opportunity and offers a framework for starting or scaling up activities for a range of development funder audiences. Each organization’s mission, motivations, staff profile, and operating context are, of course, unique. As there is no “one size fits all” method to adopting a Blended Finance approach, the framework provided in this document will need to be tailored to fit your own organization’s needs. This Guide has used the experience of the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development to illustrate ‘real world’ examples of how this process can be employed, but their experience will need to be adapted for your own context. The purpose of this document is to help your organization set goals to engage in Blended Finance and realize an action plan for successful implementation. Development funders can draw on a range of tools to engage private capital providers through Blended Finance."
