A Legal Road Map

For Social Impact Bonds in Developing Countries


November 2014

In 2014, we collaborated with the Thomson Reuters Foundation and Baker & McKenzie, along with 5 law firms in seven key markets for Social Impact Bonds to develop a legal road map for SIBs in each of these jurisdictions. We know overcoming legal challenges is critical to properly designing and implementing SIBs and we know we can’t solve these questions alone. The objective of this road map is to guide anyone who is looking to bring Social Impact Bonds to Brazil, Chile, Colombia, India, Mauritius, Mexico and/or South Africa along the legal obstacles that they may face.

Although this road map doesn’t provide all the answers, it’s a start. We are happy and honored to be able to share this with others who are looking to further the results movement in international development. You can access the Legal Roadmap here.
