Blended Finance Technical Briefs Primer .
Technical Brief | July 20, 2021
Chemonics International’s Private Sector Engagement team, in collaboration with Dalberg and KOIS, has developed a series of technical briefs to enrich the technical knowledge of the development community around blended finance in the areas of agricultural finance, gender lens investing, healthcare services, health supply chains, and sustainable landscapes. This primer provides a targeted, high-level overview of blended finance mechanisms to contextualize these sector-specific technical briefs.
The blended finance technical briefs provide tactical guidance and practical use cases for a variety of sectors, which will serve as a reference point for development practitioners interested in leveraging blended finance approaches in project design and delivery and improving the quality of engagement with the private sector. This primer includes a brief overview of how recent blended finance investments have been deployed in the sector, as well as relevant, specific areas where Chemonics has engaged. Note that these technical briefs do not recommend specific structures as the selection of such is highly dependent upon project and operating contexts.
