Opportunity for donors
By making grants to the Lives and Livelihoods Fund, donors unlock the concessional lending resources for projects that will lessen poverty and speed social and economic development.
The largest development initiative of its kind in the Middle East
The Lives and Livelihoods Fund concessional financing helps countries access critical resources for independently driving strategic development to break the cycle of generational poverty among their citizens
Taking blended finance to scale
Donors providing more than 10% of the Fund’s grant money in any one year join the Fund’s Impact Committee. The Impact Committee ensures projects that are funded meet the Fund’s objectives and monitors their progress.
Support relevant and ready-to-go projects
The Lives and Livelihoods Fund finances projects in health, agriculture, and basic infrastructure that meet three criteria: relevance, readiness, and results. Investments focus on improving access to quality primary healthcare and infectious disease control, improving staple productivity and livelihoods of small-holder farmers, and basic infrastructure projects like water and sanitation or off-grid power solutions, to provide marginalized communities the same opportunities for growth as are afforded to others.
A helping hand to countries taking responsibility for their own development
Once financing agreements have been signed, the Islamic Development Bank supports countries to set up in-country Project Management Units (PMUs) and, where necessary, engage implementation partners to roll-out the project and monitor progress.
