India: Cofinancing

Cofinancing operations enable ADB’s financing partners, governments or their agencies, multilateral financing institutions, and commercial organizations to participate in financing ADB projects. Additional funds are provided in the form of official loans and grants, technical assistance, other concessional financing, and commercial cofinancing such as B loans, risk transfer arrangements, parallel loans and equity, guarantee cofinancing, and cofinancing for transactions under ADB’s Trade Finance Program.

From 1970 to the end of 2016, cumulative direct value-added (DVA) official cofinancing for India amounted to $3.58 billion for 32 investment projects, and $121.1 million for 120 technical assistance projects. Cumulative DVA commercial cofinancing for India amounted to $1.38 billion for 16 investment projects.

In 2016, India received $1.03 billion loan cofinancing from the Government of Japan, the Clean Technology Fund, and the World Bank for three investment projects; and $27.9 million grant cofinancing from the World Bank and the Urban Climate Change Resilience Trust Fund under the Urban Financing Partnership Facility for two investment projects.
