The EIB and development

Operating in more than 130 countries, and in Africa since 1963, the EU’s bank is helping the EU meet its objectives globally including to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals. Last year the EIB invested more than EUR 8bn outside the EU, in projects to support the Sustainable Development Goals: creating good jobs and fighting poverty, supporting young people, women and rural populations, preventing disease through access to clean water, supporting green energy and building vital transport links.

The EIB Results Measurement (ReM) report describes how the Bank is working to deliver results on issues such as the SDGs, climate and migration, and the financial and technical contribution we are able to provide.

Organised by the European Commission, the European Development Days (EDD) bring the development community together each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
