Who finances the projects


a). The International Financial Institutions (IFIs) mainly include:

The European Union, through Europeaid.

United Nations (includes agencies like IAPSO, UNICEF, FAO, WHO and UNOPS among others).

The World Bank and regional banks like the African Development Bank or the Inter-American Development Bank.

Millennium Challenge Corporation (United States).

b). There are also projects that are directly funded by the authorities of one country to another, bilateral aid in Spain, which grants aid through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation and through the Ministry of Economy. The same model goes for Portugal, France, Sweden, Luxembourg, United States (USAID) and Japan, among others.

c). Finally, there are projects that are launched by the beneficiary country of the project, but they do not offer the same guarantees as those organized by the multilateral agencies or bilateral aid.
