The Role of Development Banks

(p.302) 12 Financial Sustainability and Infrastructure Finance
The Future of National Development Banks

Felipe Carvalho de Rezende

Oxford University Press

Among the lessons that can be drawn from the global financial crisis is that private financial institutions have failed to promote the capital development of the affected economies, and to dampen financial fragility. This chapter analyses the macroeconomic role that development banks can play in this context, not only providing long-term funding necessary to promote economic development, but also fostering financial stability. The chapter discusses, in particular, the need for public financial institutions to provide support for infrastructure and sustainable development projects. It concludes that development banks play a strategic role by funding infrastructure projects in particular, and outlines the lessons for enhancing their role as catalysts for mitigating risks associated with such projects.

Keywords:   national development banks, infrastructure finance, long-term funding, sustainable development, global financial crisis
