In recent years, the valuable role that multilateral development banks can and do play in emerging, and developed economies, has received clearer recognition in wider and ever-growing circles. This paper identifies, and discusses, four valuable functions that seem crucial for multilateral as well as regional and national development banks: a) providing counter-cyclical long-term finance, especially for supporting investment; b) supporting national development strategies; c) mobilizing increased resources, for example by leverage and blending; and d) financing the provision of public goods, such as mitigating climate change. The paper emphasizes that development banks should be conceived and analyzed as a system, where synergies and complementarities exist between multilateral, regional, and national development banks.
