More than $160 billion in private investment was mobilized by Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) and Development Finance Institutions (DFIs) in 2017. The number—which demonstrates the potential of these organizations in the global efforts to promote inclusive and sustainable growth, fight poverty and inequality, and protect the planet—is one of the findings of a recent report developed by MDBs and led by IFC.
Mobilization of Private Finance by Multilateral Development Banks and Development Finance Institutions 2017 builds on a 2017 report that used, for the first time, a joint framework and methodology to measure private investment mobilized by these institutions. The latest report includes the amounts of finance mobilized by European Development Finance Institutions following their adoption of the framework. It also contains breakdowns by countries’ income level and regions, and details on areas of investment.
