About IFIs

Relying on the support of their member countries, the IFIs provide financial and technical assistance to developing countries with the goal of supporting economic growth and raising the standard of living. For many developing countries, the IFIs are the largest source of international financing and play a key partnership role in support of countries’ development agendas.

IFIs Importance to the U.S

For over 75 years, and particularly in times of international crisis, the United States has turned to the IFIs to effectively leverage scarce resources for development and promote strong standards for aid effectiveness, transparency and accountability. The IFI Working Group is committed to promoting constructive U.S. leadership at the IFIs and we seek to increase awareness among policymakers of the value of these institutions and how they support U.S. development priorities. We aim to see the U.S. strengthen its commitment to effective and informed engagement at the IFIs.
