Global Toolbox: Multilateral Development Banks to Support Private Investment in Africa
It takes more than one organization to advance development. That’s why Multilateral Development Banks are joining forces to support and strengthen private sector investments in developing countries across the globe.
The Global Toolbox provides an interactive inventory of instruments available from multilateral development banks to support and enhance private investments in emerging and developing markets across the globe. The interactive toolbox is grouped by region: Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Within each region, instruments are categorized by those available to governments, to investors, and to firms and other private sector entities. The instruments in each regional Toolbox may not be available to all countries in the region, but will depend on the mandate and policies of the relevant development banks.
This version of the Toolbox outlines instruments to scale up private investments in Africa. For each sub-category, the following structure is applied as instrument types:
1. Project preparation and advisory facilities
2. Risk mitigation vehicles and guarantees
3. Co-investment platforms
4. Project financial instruments
5. Blended finance project instruments
