The need to mobilise private resources is at the heart of discussions around how to finance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including to combat climate change. The DAC has been working on this issue under mandates from the December 2014 and February 2016 High Level Meetings to establish an international standard for measuring the volume of private finance mobilised by official development finance interventions.

This work is carried out in consultation with multilateral and bilateral development finance institutions, as well as in close collaboration with the OECD-led Research Collaborative on tracking private climate finance. It is also expected to contribute to the ongoing development of a broader measurement framework of total official support for sustainable development (TOSSD) and the DAC work stream on blended finance.

As from 2017 onwards, data collection on amounts mobilised has been implemented in the regular DAC statistical system.

Latest results

The 2016 survey shows that, in 2012-15, USD 81.1 billion was mobilised from the private sector by official development finance interventions in form of guarantees, syndicated loans, shares in collective investment vehicles (CIVs), credit lines and direct investment in companies.
