This publication examines the role of innovative finance for business sector development as a pathway to financing and achieving Africa’s sustainable development and Agenda 2063. It articulates how innovative sources of finance can be utilized to finance Africa’s business sector development, taking into account innovations in the financial services sector and financial technologies as one of the main mechanisms for transitioning African countries to inclusive economic growth and sustainable development.
