How think tanks can help build the impact investing ecosystem

This practice paper shares reflections and lessons from a collaborative venture between four National Advisory Boards and local think tank partners within their respective country contexts.

The paper explores these insights specifically from the perspective of the think tank partner, to complement publications from GSG that focus on the project’s lessons for National Advisory Boards and other industry actors.

The paper is inspired by the learnings of a two-year project carried out in partnership with the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment, a global action tank dedicated to accelerating the impact investment market globally.

We hope this paper will be of interest to the think tank and research community and raise awareness about the emerging opportunities presented by the impact investing sector for engagement and research.
