ODI Publishes New Report on Development Finance Institutions

The Overseas Development Institute has published a new report, authored by Samantha Attridge and Matthew Gouett, on the current challenges and opportunities faced by bilateral and multilateral development finance institutions (DFIs) investing for sustainable development in developing countries. Ms. Attridge observes: “DFIs are powerful development actors but they are at a critical juncture. They are increasingly being tasked with more ambitious goals such as creating new markets and mobilising institutional investment at scale but their business models and investment approaches have been slow to adapt. Bold action by shareholders is required to change business models to help DFIs meet this new ambitious vision.” Access the full report HERE
