The Partners of the Impact Management Platform gathered today to call for the mainstreaming of impact management and to share progress on their joint collaboration.

A co-hosted webinar began with calls to action from Achim Steiner, Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), and Mathias Cormann, Secretary-General of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Following their statements were three sessions with panellists representing a range of Partner organisations:

  • Panel 1: Why do enterprises, investors and financial institutions urgently need to adopt impact management?
  • Panel 2: Mainstreaming impact management: Towards a complete and coherent system of norms and resources
  • Panel 3: The role of policy in mainstreaming impact management

The webinar marked the official launch of three new resources that were published on the Platform’s website last week, comprising a thought piece clarifying the imperative for impact management, an explanation of the core management actions that allow for impact management, and a set of key terms and concepts related to impact management.
