Mobilization of Private Finance by Multilateral Development Banks and Development Finance Institutions 2019

The Joint Report on Mobilization of Private Finance by Multilateral Development Banks and Development Finance Institutions, 2019 reports on mobilization from 27 Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) and Development Finance Institutions (DFIs). The institutions follow a common methodology that was agreed in 2016. This is the fourth annual Joint Report of the series.

The report measures private investment in development projects for which MDBs and DFIs have also provided financing. These investments support global sustainable development goals by promoting inclusive and sustainable growth, fighting poverty and inequality, mitigating the effects of climate change, or achieving other development goals.

In 2019, the reporting MDBs and DFIs mobilized $63.6 billion of private finance in operations in middle- and low-income countries. This includes $6.7 billion mobilized for low-income countries, an increase of 21% over 2018.

The Joint Report for 2019 features contributions from several MDBs on recent trends reflecting “unlocking” new sources of private mobilization, including pension funds, insurance companies and impact investors.
