What does IsDB do?

IsDB fosters innovative and sustainable solutions to the world’s greatest development challenges, as they work towards UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The multilateral development finance institution boosts the value chain of developing economies by investing in training and skills, research and development, so they can generate and retain greater economic prosperity at home, instead of exporting that value abroad.

"Bettering Lives, Delivering Impact, Boosting Recovery, Tackling Poverty & Building Resilience, Driving Green Economic Growth"

The IsDB group is fully committed to the SDGs. It recognizes that development objectives vary from one country to another. Its work is therefore initiated and motivated by understanding the real needs of its member countries, and it adapts its interventions accordingly. The IsDB group supports the implementation of this transformative agenda according to the needs and priorities of its member countries, through a collaborative approach, and in partnership with bilateral and multilateral development financing institutions, the private sector and civil society.
