    AgDevCo in Malawi: A case study of the higher costs – and notable impact – of investing in challenging contexts

    Firms and investors face high risks and costs when entering and operating in challenging environments, but their investments can provide considerable social and economic benefits. This case study explores how AgDevCo’s investments in Malawi demonstrate these dynamics and motivate the case for public funding to be used to offset the costs of pioneering in difficult settings.

    Strengthening development finance in fragile contexts

    Pioneering firms have the potential to achieve significant social and economic benefits in fragile and conflict‑affected settings. However, these contexts involve higher risks and costs, which dissuades pioneers and investors. In this policy paper, we argue that the public good these firms provide warrants the use of public funds to offset the costs of pioneering in these...

    Priorities for renewable energy investment in fragile states

    State fragility is strongly linked to prevalent climate hazards and poor energy access. Conflict, poverty, and poor governance increase countries’ vulnerability to climate change threats, while access to electricity – especially renewable – is lowest in fragile settings. Four key factors make the scaling of renewable energy investment in fragile and...

    R&D, Manufacturing and Delivery of Vaccines: A Global Deal in the Fight Against COVID-19

    Given the massive uncertainty surrounding how COVID-19 will play out in terms of health outcomes as well as economic and social outcomes, policymaking is as hard as it can possibly be.
