World Bank (WB)

The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. The World Bank is not a bank in the ordinary sense but a unique partnership to reduce poverty and support development. The World Bank Group comprises five institutions (IBRD, IDA, IFC, MIGA, ICSID) managed by their member countries. The WB Group provides low-interest loans, zero to low-interest credits, and grants to developing countries. These support a wide array of investments in such areas as education, health, public administration, infrastructure, financial and private sector development, agriculture, and environmental and natural resource management. Some of WB projects are cofinanced with governments, other multilateral institutions, commercial banks, export credit agencies, and private sector investors.

European Investment Bank (EIB)

The EIB is the European Union’s bank. We are the only bank owned by and representing the interests of the European Union Member States. We work closely with other EU institutions to implement EU policy. The EIB is the world’s largest multilateral borrower and lender that provides finance and expertise for sustainable investment projects that contribute to EU policy objectives.

Green Climate Fund (GCF)

The Fund is a unique global initiative to respond to climate change by investing into low-emission and climate-resilient development. GCF was established by 194 governments to limit or reduce greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries, and to help adapt vulnerable societies to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. Given the urgency and seriousness of the challenge, the Fund is mandated to make an ambitious contribution to the united global response to climate change.

European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)

The EBRD is a multilateral development bank, using investment as a tool to help build market economies. Initially focused on the countries of the former Eastern Bloc (former European Communist Countries), it expanded its support to development in the democracies of 30 countries from central Europe to central Asia. EBRD invests mainly in private enterprises.

European Commission (EC)

European Commission – is the executive body of the European Union responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the Union’s treaties and day-to-day running of the EU.  The Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) is responsible for designing European international cooperation and development policy and delivering aid throughout the world. DG DEVCO is in charge of development cooperation policy in a wider framework of international cooperation, adapting to the evolving needs of partner countries.
