Natural resources are a vital source of jobs, energy, and government revenues. IFC’s mission in the natural resources sector, which includes oil, gas, and mining, is to help developing countries realize these potential benefits while helping promote sustainable solutions for community development. We provide financing and advice for private sector clients and assist governments in adopting effective regulations and strengthening their capacity to manage these industries across the value chain.
In FY19, our new long-term commitments in the sector totaled about $1 billion, including $758 million mobilized from other investors.
