About the Event
Impact Management and Measurement (IMM) represents the reframing of M&E in the Impact Investing Industry. The practice as seen a critical part of making impactful investments, yet the onus on whose job it is to perform the functions of IMM vary. This is often brought about by the expectation that IMM is a due diligence requirement for accountability for investors. This panel explores the opportunity for IMM practice to potentially play a greater role in the sector, for uncovering how might capacity development in the sector serve sector better and how M&E body of knowledge and practice can enhance IMM practice.
