The EDFI Association’s 15 European member development finance institutions (DFIs) performed strongly in 2022. They sustained a high level of new investment commitments, according to the latest figures. Combined investment activity reached €8.6 billion in 2022 in more than 630 new commitments to clients in the private sector in emerging and developing economies*. The African continent once again received the largest share of investment, with €3.6 billion of new commitments in 2022, and climate finance emerged as the strongest impact theme with €3.3 billion. The 2022 investment amounts show EDFI members delivering on their commitments to support new and existing clients throughout the recovery from COVID-19 and the challenges resulting from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
