Over the next four weeks, and in the lead-up to Building Bridges Week 2022, the SDG Lab is running a series of interviews looking at sustainable finance from the perspectives of four people involved in the Pipeline Builder pilot.

The pilot, which is a joint initiative of the SDG Lab and the Ground_Up Project, seeks to streamline and boost financial flows to projects aligned with national sustainable development strategies.

The initiative has kickstarted in Ghana, and our CEO Yofi Grant has been shedding light on SDG investments in the wake of new pressures.
