Islamic Finance Rapid Scoping Study

The Islamic Finance Rapid Scoping Study was commissioned by the SDG Platform towards its PHC window outcome on innovative financing. The study considers Kenya’s current context for Islamic finance; describes various Islamic social and corporate finance instruments relevant to PHC; notes challenges and opportunities for Islamic financing to support investment in PHC in Kenya; and presents actionable recommendations for follow up by the SDG PP.

Although several studies and initiatives on Islamic financing for SDG achievement have been undertaken by various country, regional and global UN entities, the SDG PP Islamic finance scoping study is the first to be undertaken for a UN programme in a country which does not have a Muslim majority population.
