Approach Paper: Stocktaking of Private Finance Mobilization at the IDB Group
This approach paper defines the objective, scope, and methodology for the Office of Evaluation and Oversight's (OVE) stocktaking of Private Finance Mobilization (PFM) at the Inter-American Development Bank Group (IDBG or the Group). This work is included in OVE's 2022-2023 Work Program (document RE-574-1) to address the interest of the IDB and IDB Invest Executive Boards in exploring the Group's experience of mobilizing private finance. This stocktaking will be delivered at a time when the IDBG and its shareholders are looking for innovative ways to mobilize additional financing to support Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Furthermore, this exercise takes place in a context where the IDBG is developing its new institutional strategy, and IDB Invest is preparing a capitalization proposal, both to be delivered to Governors in the 2024 Annual Meeting.
