The Project

The Global Steering Group for Impact Investment (GSG), which works to catalyze a global ecosystem for impact investment and entrepreneurship, is developing actionable solutions to the challenges facing 1 billion+ people who live in informal settlements in the Global South. The project builds on the GSG’s research work, including the publication of its report, “Informal Settlements: No Longer Invisible”, and work with its National Advisory Boards (NABs) to tailor solutions to different national contexts. In this effort, the GSG is now focused on breaking down silos among stakeholders, from urban experts to impact investors and policymakers. This project works on the barriers to implementation that are holding back the flow of catalytic capital that can address key development challenges in some of the world’s poorest urban areas.

Value and Outcomes

There is an estimated $6.5 trillion global investment gap related to the development needs of informal settlements. By proposing actionable solutions that can benefit these communities, and by working in collaboration with strong local habitat, investment, and philanthropic partners, the GSG has the potential to ignite significant impact and offer strategies that can be replicated and tailored around the world.
