Outcomes Management for Financial Service Providers: A Proposed Standard Framework Aligned With the Sustainable Development Goals

Since 2019, the e-MFP Investors Action Group has developed a project led by CERISE to explore innovative approaches for investors on measuring and reporting outcomes using the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This has been a collaborative project also involving SPTF's Outcomes Working Group, which continues previous joint work on the topic of outcomes measurement and management and complements other initiatives such as CERISE's LabODD.

This report is the final output of this project and the result of more than two years of discussion and sharing experiences among investors, development finance institutions and financial service providers worldwide. This report aims to contribute to building a framework of actionable indicators based on the SDG targets that can answer the need for a simple, credible methodology to monitor outcomes: one that is built on a well-defined social strategy and theory of change, and that is assessed regularly through internal data management systems.
