IDB Major Existing Collaboration:
Multi-donor thematic funds Public and private sector partners play a major role in financing activities that contribute to the region’s development.
Donor trust funds at the IDB are a critical source not only of grant financing for technical cooperation and investment grants, but also of know-how, expertise, and transfer of knowledge. As IDB responds to emerging development challenges, the donor community and the IDB have agreed to focus on results, strengthening grant financing in the programming process, and creating a select series of multi-donor funds that target specific priority areas.
Project Specific Grant (PSG). Non-reimbursable contributions administered by the Bank on behalf of one or more partners, public or private, to finance specific Bank projects, programs or other activities benefiting Bank borrowing member countries.
