Development Impact  Areas of Work  Modeling for Development



IFC is currently developing pilot models that seek to help us better understand and estimate the developmental impact of our work.  These models will attempt to extend our understanding of the integrated nature of development and therefore better show the true impact of private investment on economic growth, job creation, and improved development outcomes. We hope that these models will complement existing Development Impact tools to better assess the direct and indirect effects of IFC operations on our twin goals of eradicating extreme poverty and boosting prosperity, as well as on relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
