In this session, we will explore how data sharing can help the development of an outcomes ecosystem, using the case of the Imagine SIB, the first social impact bond in South Africa where the totality of outcomes funding comes from government.
The International Network for Data on Impact and Government Outcomes (INDIGO) is an emerging data collaborative interested in sharing data about the design, implementation and evaluation of outcome-based projects. INDIGO’s ambition is to support the creation and use of quality data by policymakers, NGOs, citizen advocates and anyone who is addressing or is interested in complex social problems.

The International Network for Data on Impact and Government Outcomes (INDIGO) peer learning group is about building shared culture and standards around data in social outcome-based projects. The group meets quarterly and is a forum for civic tech enthusiasts, policy-makers and other actors in cross-sector partnerships for social outcomes to work together towards better data for better social outcomes. The sessions are run by Mara Airoldi, GO Lab Academic Director, and Juliana Outes, GO Lab Data Steward. Read more about the INDIGO initiative here.
We will explore how data and evidence can help grow an outcomes ecosystem by using the case of the Imagine SIB, the first outcomes-based contract (OBC) in South Africa, launched by the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC), with full outcomes funding being provided by government. The SAMRC has brought together and contracted the stakeholders including the investor, implementer and government. The SAMRC has combined the roles of intermediary and outcomes funder during the implementation of the SOBC.
The Imagine SOBC programme is an innovative, evidence-based intervention to empower vulnerable adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) to improve their sexual health and wellbeing, by providing a comprehensive package of targeted interventions that help AGYW imagine a brighter future for themselves. It will be provided in 14 high schools across two sub districts in South Africa and aims to achieve the following outcomes:
