The Institute of New Structural Economics (INSE) at Peking University and the Agence française de développement (AFD) are collaborating to build the first comprehensive database on public development banks (PDBs) and development finance institutions (DFIs) worldwide. The present database report aims to build on the inaugural New Structural Economics Development Financing
Research Report titled “Mapping Development Finance Institutions Worldwide: Definitions, Rationales, and Varieties” to propose the principles of building a credible list of PDBs and DFIs; refine the qualification criteria; propose potential classifications of PDBs and DFIs to uncover their diversities; and present the stylized facts of establishment year, geographical distribution, mandate, asset size, relative economic weight in their respective economies, and so on.

This Research Paper was originally published in November 2020 under the title “Qualifying and Classifying Public Development Banks and Development Financing Institutions”and released for the occasion of the 14th AFD International Research Conference on Development. This is an updated version from October 2021.

This Research Paper is published in the framework of the International Research Initiative on Public Development Banks working groups 

It is part of the pilot research program “Realizing the Potential of Public Development Banks for Achieving Sustainable Development Goals”. This program was launched, along with the International Research Initiative on Public Development Banks (PDBs), by the Institute of New Structural Economics (INSE) at Peking University, and sponsored by the Agence française de développement (AFD), Ford Foundation and International Development Finance Club (IDFC).
