4. Assess gaps in organizational capacity for Blended Finance
5. Pilot Blended Finance deals with your new framework
6. Review lessons to build Blended Finance capabilities
7. Develop pipeline and deal execution capacity
8. Learn and scale up across your organization

The Guide was created by the ReDesigning Development Finance Initiative, a joint initiative of the World Economic Forum and the OECD, and is freely accessible online.
