Sustainable Development Investment Partnership (SDIP)

Challenging financing and risk environments in emerging and frontier markets have resulted in an annual shortfall exceeding $1 trillion per year that is needed to finance critical infrastructure projects. Through the work of the ReDesigning Development Finance Initiative (RDFI) to encourage adoption of Blended Finance to help catalyse private sector investment in developing countries, the Sustainable Development Investment Partnership (SDIP) was established in 2015 to mobilize $100 billion in Blended Finance for projects supporting sustainable and climate-resilient infrastructure. Representing 42 public, private and philanthropic institutions from around the world and coordinated by the World Economic Forum and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), SDIP provides a neutral platform to facilitate the strategic coordination of public resources alongside the private sector that unlock commercial financing constraints, enabling new transactions and the participation of new capital providers.
