The Sustainable Development Investment Partnership (SDIP) has been launched to mobilize $100 billion in private financing over five years for infrastructure projects in developing countries using development assistance to reduce risk. The partnership, which is being backed by the World Economic Forum and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), was launched at the United Nations Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa, 13-16 July 2015.
The fastest growing economies in the world are all developing countries and emerging markets. Their potential and need for private investments to boost development is enormous. Despite the higher expected returns on investments and the long-term cash flows offered in emerging markets, infrastructure investments in developing countries are constrained by political and financial risks. The SDIP aims to mobilize these and other potential private investments by improving and enhancing risk mitigation tools to reduce political, regulatory, credit, currency and liquidity threats.
