From green power microlending to youth-oriented finances and impact measurement for creatives, these international development innovations take the triple bottom line into consideration for their use and reuse of some familiar and unfamiliar ways of creating change. Whether or not there’s a reciprocal relationship between the two or rather, one is pulling on the other, is hard to tell but over time, the spaces will carve itself out.
