Our Program

Dedicated to a better future

Right from our inception, the International Development Finance Club (IDFC) has lost no time in defining strategic issues. In fact, the Work Program for 2011/2012 has led to significant results. For 2013 / 2014, IDFC’s Members agreed on a work program compiling environmental, climate and social development topics. The Club assesses each year on the topicality and importance of its work streams and is updating and enhancing the work program on a regular basis.

IDFC’s Work Program for 2013 / 2014 and Review

Great emphasis is once again put on Clean Energy and Sustainable Development. IDFC engaged four major working groups and once again the Green Finance Mapping, which is one of the most notable and substantial reports of the Club. In 2013, the Members agreed on the topics

  • Sustainable Infrastructure
  • Renewable Energy
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Social & Economic Inclusion

In 2011 and 2012, IDFC started with Climate Finance as its initial work program, since financing access to clean and sustainable energy is on the top of today’s development agenda.

As international climate negotiations of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) struggle to strike a balance between improved energy access and clean energy supply, IDFC strives to make a concerted contribution by mobilizing green growth potential in the countries in which its Members are active.

We are planning for the future

Building on Climate Finance and Sustainable Development, the IDFC focuses on the financing of environmentally friendly (green) infrastructure and social development. Each topic and working program entails a variety of activities, such as the general promotion of the topic, the development of a statement and a strategy briefs, the collation of best-practice programs and training, and concrete measures to strengthen interbank financial cooperation.
