Direct Investment

ICD SDG 091540710651_7917.jpg

All in all, direct interventions during 2017 were
the highest since the ICD’s inception,
with approvals totaling USD339.5m in 25 transactions
across eight countries.

 

We aim to maximize the developmental impact of our operations and therefore focus on transactions in sectors where investments may open up new horizons for private sector operations. We select solid corporates and strong infrastructure projects through robust entry and due diligence processes.

THE IMPORTANCE OF SUSTAINABILITY

Our investments add value to the economic and social development of member countries, with a particular focus on achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through job creation, transfer of technology, cross-border
investment, and investment in renewable energy (solar and wind) infrastructure projects. The ICD has adopted a selective approach to financing and investing in highimpact real sector infrastructure transactions.

In line with the global development agenda – and in response to global collective action towards climate change – we aim to support our member countries in their journey towards sustainability and resilience. Our selective approach to financing and investing in highimpact real sector infrastructure transactions yielded more than USD180m in financing to infrastructure projects, mainly in healthcare and clean energy.
