ABSTRACT

Results-Based Financing Through Social Enterprises: A White Paper for the Global Partnership for Results-Based Approaches, in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Summary: "The COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic is wreaking havoc across the world, but its worst effects are in areas and among communities that are the least likely to be able to manage them. The measures governments, businesses and communities have taken to contain the pandemic are also affecting global supply chains engaged in sourcing and channelling essential goods and services to those communities most in need. Communities in regional hotspots are particularly vulnerable, but the pandemic's cascading impacts extend well beyond hotspots. In short, it has triggered a global humanitarian crisis, putting both lives and livelihoods at risk. Informal workers in precarious jobs are at greater risk of contracting the virus because they often cannot afford to stay at home and risk losing their jobs. Overall, poverty rates are expected to rise."
