SDG Impact has developed an innovative tool to provide investors with country-level market intelligence that highlights key intersections between development need, policy priorities, and investor interest. SDG Investor Maps provide localized insight into sectors and market conditions that advance the SDGs. The methodology identifies Investment Opportunity Areas (IOAs) and business models that could advance the SDGs. These opportunities are backed by actionable data to guide investor decision-making.

The SDG Investor Map was successfully piloted in Brazil 2019 and identified 21 Investment Opportunity Areas (IOA) across six sectors. Each IOA provides 17 data points to inform investor decision-making. SDG Investor Maps are being developed in Armenia, Colombia, China, Ghana, India, Jordan, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Turkey and Uganda (as of May 2020), with plans to scale to further countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America in coming months. A COVID-19 Rapid Assessment Add-on has been developed and is being piloted in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Uganda.
