Funding Insights: Emerging Donors
July 18
Online

Global development funding is undergoing a period of transformation. New donors such as Turkey, South Africa, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and Green Climate Fund are expanding the foreign aid funding pool — and filling the gaps as traditional donors shrink and shift priorities. New research by Devex estimates that funding from these donors has increased by a staggering 47 percent in just five years — from $5.7 billion in 2010 to $8.4 billion in 2015. This July, Devex is convening a panel of experts to discuss trends for these emerging donors — and how implementers can leverage this moment.
