Increasing the impact of the private sector

Jane Nelson is speaking at IFC in Washington DC today. For those of you who can't come, here's her paper from the recent Brookings-Blum round table.

This paper illustrates some emerging business models, investment strategies, and new types of partnership. It suggests a conceptual framework for thinking about the contribution of business to development, and it provides a set of strategies that any company can apply to manage its development contribution in a manner that protects or builds both social value and market value.
