More on the FDI Qualities Initiative 


Foreign direct investment (FDI) is an important source of finance for sustainable development. But, beyond the quantity of FDI, its quality also matters. The FDI Qualities Indicators, first developed in 2019, seek to measure the impact of international investment on sustainable development, focusing on productivity and innovation, job quality and skills, gender equality, and decarbonisation.

The 2022 update of the FDI Qualities Indicators includes two special focus sections on Green Economy and Resilience to the COVID-19 Pandemic. These indicators serve to inform policymakers in using the FDI Qualities Policy Toolkit to identify policy and institutional reforms to attract sustainable investment.
