Catalyze Private Capital


IFC’s biggest impact is not its own account financing, but its ability to mobilize external capital to climate sectors. Major financial institutions have expressed interest for IFC to share its financial instruments and structures to help reduce country or perceived technology and project risk, unlocking investments and enabling them to invest at scale.

 Looking forward to 2020, IFC has pledged to catalyze $13 billion in external private sector capital annually to climate sectors through mobilization, aggregation, and de-risking products.

To achieve this goal, IFC will:

  • Create products that attract larger institutional sources of capital through aggregation and securitization
  • Create de-risking vehicles that use blended finance to catalyze new external investment
  • Mobilize capital through public-private partnerships (PPPs)
