Using donor funds to improve sustainability

In 2013, donors provided significant grant funding, totalling almost €350 million, to complement and support the Bank’s investments. Donor-funded technical cooperation helps us to deliver environmental and social benefits for our clients and communities across the region. These TC projects yield direct benefits to Bank-financed projects in a number of areas, including health and safety, pollution prevention and labour and social safeguards. They have also enabled us to develop innovative approaches to emerging issues such as energy efficiency, climate adaptation, economic inclusion and gender equality. Over the last 10 years donors have contributed over €20 million for EBRD environmental and social TC projects. More information on the full range of the EBRD’s donor-funded programmes is available in the Donor Report 2014 at: www.dr.ebrd.com.
