One-to-one sessions: collaborate with multilateral development banks

Development banks play an important role in providing stable funding to emerging nations and financing large infrastructure projects that might otherwise be too expensive for a developing economy. They focus on countries’ specific needs and have various financing mechanisms to support sovereign governments and the private sector in planning, financing, or mitigating risks of large infrastructure projects.

The development banks have their strictly defined processes and clear organizational strategies in terms of infrastructure projects’ funding and engagement with the private sector. This engagement is an iterative process and takes place throughout different phases of the project cycle. 

Given that the large infrastructure projects operate in volumes of billions annually and require consulting, goods, and services, the private sector can greatly benefit from collaboration with development banks. And though all information about the funds and standard operating procedures is available to the wider public, it is not always easy to understand the banks’ complex, elaborate schemes. What are the steps to undertake when starting an active collaboration with a development bank? What are the necessary requirements? Can your business participate in foreign projects?

The representatives of the world’s largest development banks will be happy to answer these, and many other questions, at our event on Thursday, October 27. Specifically, we will address the three following sectors:

  • Energy (generation, storage and distribution)
  • Water and Waste Management
  • Transportation and Mobility

You will have a unique chance to engage one-to-one with the experts and consultants from the following development banks:

  • The World Bank
  • IFC (International Finance Cooperation)
  • Asian Development Bank
  • European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)
  • Interamerican Development Bank 
  • African Development Bank
