Literature Review of Blended Finance in the Non-State Education Sector
Non-State Blended Finance Best Practices and Lessons Learned
USAID in partnership with Palladium commissioned this literature review to add to its institutional knowledge base and inform best practices and important lessons learned, specifically instructional learnings related to blended finance in non-state education provision. This review examines blended finance in non-state education from early childhood education through vocational, tertiary, and ancillary services. The review focuses on low- and middle-income countries and draws on lessons learned and best practices from developed countries and analyzes the role of blended finance in the non-state education sector, drawing from existing research in low-income community (LICs) and other countries around the world. It provides key findings, best practices, lessons learned, and areas of consensus and dissent. It identifies knowledge gaps and areas for further research, and opportunities to expand blended financing in the non-state education sector.
