An EIB donor since 2005, Belgium has contributed a total of EUR 3.5 million to two EIB trust funds: the FEMIP Trust Fund (FTF), which supports development projects in the EU’s Southern Neighbourhood, and the innovative EU-Africa Infrastructure Trust Fund (EU-AITF), which facilitates financing for regional and cross-border infrastructure projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Why partner with us
Donor partnerships provide an effective vehicle for donors looking to deliver sustained impact in developing countries. They enable donors to work with the EIB to unlock projects with high socio-economic returns, reaching out to people and places with additional support for targeted development outcomes. EIB activities outside the EU account for around one third of EU development aid. All contributions to EIB donor funds are considered Official Development Assistance (ODA) eligible.
