Numbers for Good and the Overseas Development Institute were commissioned by the IKEA Foundation to research innovating financing measures that could be used to address humanitarian crises. Following extensive desk research, workshops and interviews with humanitarian agencies, international investors and foundations, we have written up our findings.
Our report aims to do three things:
- Identify which challenges in humanitarian financing can be best solved using investment approaches harnessing capital markets.
- Explain the different innovative financing mechanisms and how they can be applied to different challenges.
- Set out specific proposals for (a) expanding the market for humanitarian investing and (b) building momentum around specific types of investment.
