DFI Working Group on Blended Concessional Finance for Private Sector Projects: Joint Report 2019

Institutional Document | October 2019

The report provides an update on the core outcome of the work in 2018 to (i) improve the scope and quality, (ii) share knowledge and experience, and (iii) coordinate interactions with other working groups on blended concessional finance.

In this third joint report, development finance institutions (DFIs) were able to build on the past years’ methodology, developed and refined for collecting blended concessional finance data to assemble the most complete set of DFI data to date. New data shows that in 2018 DFIs financed projects with a total volume of more than $6 billion using approximately $1.1 billion in concessional funds and about $2.4 billion in DFI own-account resources. Private sector finance mobilized for these projects was about $1.7 billion.

The report was produced by a group of DFIs including ADB.
