What are SDG Investor Maps?
The SDG Investor Maps generate country-level data and insights about SDG-enabling investment opportunities. The innovative tool targets the gap between interest and investing in SDGs and the business models that could provide impactful and investable opportunities.
The methodology for developing SDG Investor Maps consists of a rigorous eight-step process drawing on a combination of in-depth desk research and focused in-country public and private sector consultations. Through this iterative process, the SDG Investor Maps identify and validate where there is overlap between development needs and policy priorities, develop and test potential business models that fit the most urgent needs, and establish comprehensive data points spanning business and impact considerations.
