As U.S. development assistance makes up less than nine percent of U.S. capital flows to the developing world, there are increasing efforts to leverage investments for development outcomes. This panel looks at the role that impact investing can play in generating long-term economic growth. In particular, the panel examines how the U.S. government, private sector, multilateral institutions, and philanthropic organizations can work together to achieve maximum outcomes. 
This event is part of CSIS’s ongoing “Chevron Forum on Development” series, which seeks to highlight innovative approaches to global development.
