Budgetary pressures and uncertainty feature prominently in policy discussions. Drawing on advances made in pricing and payment mechanisms within health and climate policies, this report explores transferrable insights for financing measures designed to level up social outcomes.
Addressing today's pressing policy issues calls for a multidisciplinary approach. By extending the lessons learned to other settings, this report challenges current practices that define ‘value’ primarily in terms of short-term financial savings and explores new financing mechanisms to improve value for money and long-term outcomes.
