IFC and our development partners work together in innovative ways to maximize finance for development.

In line with IFC’s new strategy for creating markets and mobilizing private sector investment to solve development problems, our partnerships serve a range of functions. They incubate new ideas. They allow proven solutions to be scaled up. They facilitate knowledge transfer. They build business and institutional capacity.

Together we support initiatives that strengthen our impact—particularly in cross-cutting areas such as climate change and gender equality—and channel resources to regions of the world where private investment is needed most.

IFC collaborates with more than 30 governments, 20 foundations and corporations, and a variety of multilateral and institutional partners.

In FY18, our development partners committed more than $268 million to support IFC advisory services and $469 million for blended finance initiatives.
