Innovative Humanitarian Finance
Julie Wynne, Froriep
Today’s at the international level protracted conflicts create some new challenges for humanitarian action and the need for new sources of funding and investments that go beyond immediate relief and enable sustained provision of peacebuilding or economic outcomes. Public partnerships develop to ensure humanitarian continuity during and after conflict. This panel will explore new types of innovative blended finance mechanisms to deliver financial support to humanitarian action and development by mobilizing private capital flows and helping to finance projects that would not otherwise receive private capital by apportioning risk and returns between the various stakeholders.
