The DFIs are working together within EDFI to achieve Agenda 2030 and the obligations which the international community has made in relation to financing to achieve the goals set out in Agenda 2030 and the climate targets developed in Paris COP 21.
The members of EDFI make joint investments and harmonise their requirements and follow-up procedures. This gives the development finance institutions a stronger voice and makes our work more effective. The common strategy to create economically, ecologically and socially sustainable development is to invest in profitable businesses in the private sector.
EDFI aim to create the right requirements for an efficient exchange between the members, as well as other bilateral, multilateral and regional development institutions within the EU.
