Genesis was appointed by FSD Africa to conduct research on the remaining opportunities for development finance in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The research played an important role in defining the scope for FSD Africa to provide development capital to the market. It also provided foundational information for the development of a new policy instrument for DFID and FSD Africa in the form of capital for development.
Our report to FSD Africa documented supply and demand gaps in a number of development sectors. It also included a set of recommendations on the deployment of development capital and addressed gaps in the financing of these sectors. These were accepted and formed the basis of a business case presented to DFID for financing.
