We welcome Premier Mark McGowan’s launch of the ‘Our Priorities‘ for Western Australia on 20th February 2019. The Program consists of six key outcome areas and twelve ambitious targets across the environment, communities, economy, regional prosperity and Aboriginal wellbeing.
Our new paper is an analysis of each aspect of the Priorities and addresses how Impact Investment strategies in Western Australia can support achievement of the Priorities.
Impact Seed’s analysis paper on the State Priorities and Impact Investment can be downloaded here.
Additionally, in Impact Seed’s recent submission to the Treasurer’s Office, we outlined six policy engagement points for the State Government as it considers its approach to Impact Investment. These engagement points consider how private capital can support and release government capital, recognising the importance of collaboration to help solve the complex problems in our community. The six policy points outlined in our submission focus:
- Social Procurement Strategy
- Social Enterprise Accreditation Framework
- Social Enterprise Development Strategy
- Social Innovation Policy
- Direct Impact Co-Investment
- Pay-for-Performance Contracting including Social Impact Bonds
