The IFC Development Goals complement the AIMM system to identify achievable, high-impact project goals. These cover five areas aligned with our strategy that have a direct impact on people’s lives in the markets we serve:

  • Creating sustainable farming opportunities
  • Improving health and education services
  • Providing more access to financial services for microfinance and small- and medium-enterprise clients
  • Increasing or improving infrastructure services
  • Reducing greenhouse emissions

We work with our clients to estimate specific development impacts we expect to achieve with every investment and advisory commitment we make.

In FY18, IFC made good gains in commitments toward these goals.

IFC’s Contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals

IFC’s results monitoring is aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted in September 2015. Our results measurement system has enabled IFC to take the lead among international finance institutions in reporting how we—and our clients—contribute to achieving the SDGs. Across the globe, IFC investment and advisory clients have recorded remarkable achievements.
