IFC in Europe & Central Asia

In Europe and Central Asia (ECA), we support private sector development focused on helping small and medium enterprises, developing capital markets, tackling climate change, boosting food security by supporting agribusiness, and increasing private sector participation in infrastructure. With continued euro zone volatility, IFC supports diversification and ensures access to basic goods and services to create opportunity for people to escape extreme poverty and promote shared prosperity.


In fiscal year 2014 (July 1, 2013 - June 30, 2014), IFC supported private sector development in Europe and Central Asia with $4.7 billion in 117 projects, including $1.2 billion in funds mobilized from our partners.


IFC also delivered a solid advisory program worth $40 million with a focus on projects in IDA countries, fragile and conflict-affected countries, and climate change.
