Evaluation of CDC Group (DFID Funded)

IDS, in association with Itad, IPSOS and Open Capital Advisors (OCA), is conducting the first ten-year study to systematically analyse the mobilisation of private investment by CDC in the fragile and frontier markets of Africa and South Asia.

The research study is expected to generate robust evidence and learning to support DFID and CDC to better understand the contribution it makes to direct and indirect capital mobilisation. The study builds on the methodologies of OECD and the IFC to measure mobilisation and demonstration effects, as well as conducting investor sentiment surveys and a macro-economic analysis.

The multi-disciplinary research team consists of finance and investment experts, evaluators, survey and polling specialists, and macro-economists. The study has a one-year inception phase (2017 to 2018) followed by nine years of implementation (2018 to 2027).
