The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and FMO established Infrastructure Development Fund (IDF) in 2002 to support private investments in infrastructures in developing countries. IDF is a critical enabler of transformation, bringing countries’ development paths towards greater sustainability by enabling social and economic growth. By acting as first mover and by offering risk capital to make projects bankable, IDF catalyzes private parties willing to invest at financial close or at a later stage. IDF finances infrastructure projects that can make a significant impact on socio-economic development in developing countries.
