Slovakia is one of the EIB’s newest trust fund contributors. In 2017, the country pledged a total of EUR 2 million to the new Economic Resilience Initiative Fund (ERIF). The ERIF aims to mobilise investment and build resilience for economies in the EU’s Southern Neighbourhood and the Western Balkans regions.
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.
