Steward Redqueen talks about impact measurement and attribution at FinDev Canada’s stakeholder session

On March 16, FinDev Canada and the Canadian International Development Platform (CIDP) organized a joint stakeholder event “Innovation for Development Impact: A Conversation with FinDev Canada on Impacts, Additionality, Gender and Technology in a 21st Century DFI”.  At the event, FinDev Canada presented its plans for the future and exchanged views with stakeholders on building a 21st century Development Finance Institution. Findev Canada and CIDP invited Willem Vosmer and Teodora Nenova to talk about the concept of attribution in impact measurement and share their insights on the opportunities for FinDev Canada to steer on develop impact. They also facilitated a workshop on the topic with a group of stakeholders. The session’s take away was that measuring development impacts and outcomes, and attributing results to investments is inherently complex. There is no perfect or even common template across DFIs. The best strategy is therefore to take a pragmatic approach to attribution and be transparent about assumptions.

Dialogue on ‘Sustainability in the Boardroom’

Recently we hosted a so called ‘boardroom meeting’ for the ‘Vrienden van Cobbenhagen’, the alumni association of Tilburg University. The subject was ‘Sustainability in the Boardroom’, which proved to be a basis for a lively dialogue. What kind of leadership is needed to accelerate the transition towards a sustainable economy and society? How can Boards of listed companies balance the strong forces of the capital markets with other stakeholders’ needs? In what sense are the dynamics for non-listed companies different? After concluding remarks on the value of partnerships, drinks were served and the dialogue continued.
