GSG has launched an 18-month project, co-hosted with 3 DFIs, DFC, BII and Norfund, and with generous funding from FCDO and Argidius Foundation. The project provides a platform for DFIs, PDBs, and key stakeholders – including NABs – to openly share experiences and challenges, leveraging existing initiatives and collaborations to co-create solutions and address SME finance mobilisation challenges systematically and sustainably. GSG is soliciting interest from 5-10 NABs who would like to take part in the project, as well as from fund and asset management firms, who may be willing to sponsor the Working Group and project deliverables. The April 15th NAB Dialogue will introduce the project in greater detail and review the eligibility and sponsorship criteria.
