At the Islamic Development Bank, we equip people with the tools they need to build a sustainable future for themselves, their communities and their countries, putting the infrastructure in place to enable them to reach their full potential.
We build collaborative partnerships between communities and nations, across our 57 member nations. We bring together the public and private sectors as well as with civil societies and the development sector through Public Private Partnerships and other joint projects, such as the IsDB/Gates Foundation Lives and Livelihoods Fund.
We are global leaders in Islamic finance, providing long term sustainable and ethical financing structures to underpin our project investments. In the last two decades, the IsDB has secured an AAA rating, and become the largest global issuer of Sukuk, through which we fund research and training to develop the future of Islamic banking and finance. We have successfully deepened and broadened our investor base and enhanced our profile in the international capital markets.
We foster innovative and sustainable solutions to the world’s greatest development challenges, as we work towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We champion science, technology and innovation led solutions for the development sector, through boosting skills, sourcing ideas and transforming those visions in to real solutions through our Engage Platform and Transform Fund.
We boost the value chain of developing economies by investing in training and skills, research and development, so they can generate and retain greater economic prosperity at home, instead of exporting that value abroad.
The IsDB group is fully committed to the SDGs. It recognizes that development objectives vary from one country to another. Its work is therefore initiated and motivated by understanding the real needs of its member countries, and it adapts its interventions accordingly. The IsDB group supports the implementation of this transformative agenda according to the needs and priorities of its member countries, through a collaborative approach, and in partnership with bilateral and multilateral development financing institutions, the private sector and civil society.
