Desde el Reino Unido a América Latina: Lecciones del primer bono de impacto social

Cuando uno piensa en los bonos de impacto social, siempre hay que pensar en el primer caso. En el 2010, la consultoría Social Finance UK lanzó el primer bono de impacto social para ofrecerle a los prisioneros de la cárcel en Peterborough apoyo individual y global con el fin de reducir la tasa de reincidencia. Para alcanzar este objetivo, Social Finance UK cuenta con la asistencia de 17 fundaciones e inversiones de £5 millones. Los asuntos de seguridad pública son una prioridad para gobiernos, empresas, y la sociedad civil a lo largo de América Latina y el Caribe. Para entender mejor cómo podemos llevar las lecciones del caso de Peterborough a nuestra región, lea esta entrevista  con Marta García, parte integral del equipo de Social Finance UK.

Phrases such as results-based management, results-based financing, results framework, results measurement, and disbursement by results abound. And this is for good reason. Vast sums of taxpayer and philanthropic dollars are spent each year to pay for services to support poor and vulnerable populations in developing and developed countries alike. But key challenges remain for advancing a results-driven development sector that is linked to the way in which these services are purchased.
