Theme of this match
A key focus will be how to use economic modelling and innovative financing to actually incentivize stakeholders to work towards better outcomes. The match will adress a number of themes on international, national and local/regional level. On a macro level, policy issues concerning ‘the case for investment’ and how to strengthen intersectoral work are on the agenda. Models for driving change in outcomes on regional/local level will also be discussed, and examples of Social Investment strategies, Social Impact Bonds and pay-for-performance procurement from Sweden and other contexts presented.
