The International Development Working Group is one of four thematic Working Groups of the independent Social Impact Investment Taskforce established in June 2013 under the UK’s presidency of the G8. The International Development Working Group, composed of experts in international development and finance, was created to inform the Taskforce on the role of impact investment in international development, and contribute to the Taskforce’s objectives of reporting on and helping to catalyze the development of a global social impact investment market.

The International Development Working Group brought together development practitioners and investors to explore the ways in which the changing landscape of development is creating new opportunities for effective partnerships to drive improvement in social outcomes. The Working Group assessed how impact investment can help to further drive economic development and improvement on social issues in developing countries. Working Group members agree that there is an opportunity for impact investment, in conjunction with public, private and philanthropic capital, to bring greater effectiveness, innovation, accountability and scale to address some of the world’s toughest challenges. The group presents in this report its key recommendations on some proposed joint initiatives to advance the impact investing market for the benefit of the world’s poor populations.
