The Landscape for Impact Investing in Southern Africa

The GIIN, in partnership with Open Capital Advisors, published The Landscape for Impact Investing in Southern Africa, a state-of-the-market analysis of the impact investing industry in the active region. The report includes findings from 12 countries, as well as a dedicated chapter exploring the role of development finance institutions (DFIs) across Southern Africa.

For the purposes of this report, Southern Africa includes 12 countries: Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. For each country, the report examines impact investing capital disbursed to date (by sector, size, and instrument). The report also analyzes key trends in the impact investing industry, as well as the challenges and opportunities available for both social enterprises and impact investors in each country. Further, the report offers analysis of political and economic factors that may inform and influence investment decisions on a country-by-country basis. These circumstances may have changed since initial data collection in mid-2015.
