October 2017

This toolbox provides an inventory of instruments available from multilateral development banks and the largest European Development Finance Institutions to support private investment in the Compact with Africa (CWA) countries (Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, Morocco, Rwanda, Senegal, and Tunisia). In order to provide a useful overview for clients, the toolbox groups the instruments into three main categories: those available to governments, to investors, and to firms.

Under each category, the following structure is applied:

  1. Project preparation and advisory facilities
  2. Risk mitigation vehicles and guarantees
  3. Co-investment platforms
  4. Project financial instruments
  5. Blended finance project instruments.

In addition, the toolbox describes relevant knowledge platforms related to scaling up private investments in CWA countries.
