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 OECD has been working on this issue under a mandate from the December 2014 DAC High Level Meeting to establish an international standard for measuring the volume of private finance mobilised by development finance interventions.

This work is carried out in consultation with multilateral and bilateral development finance institutions, as well as in joint 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 on blended finance.

 

Reporting on amounts mobilised from the private sector is part of the regular OECD DAC data collections since 2017.  Some information is also collected through ad-hoc surveys in order to pilot new methodologies and to fill data gaps.

Latest statistics

In 2012-17, USD 151.5 billion was mobilised from the private sector by development finance interventions in form of guarantees, syndicated loans, shares in collective investment vehicles (CIVs), credit lines, direct investment in companies and project finance special purpose vehicles (SPVs), and simple co-financing arrangements.
