    Economic Resilience Initiative Fund


    The Economic Resilience Initiative Fund (ERI) Fund aims to support resilient and inclusive growth in Europe’s Southern Neighbourhood and the Western Balkans. Donor contributions help unlock investments that can create new opportunities in the regions, especially for vulnerable groups, including young people and women. The ERI Fund presents an opportunity for Donors, in particular EU Member States, to leverage the full range of instruments, networks and expertise at the EIB’s disposal to maximise the development impact of our collective finance in the affected regions and to work towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The ERI Fund was established under the EIB-managed Partnerships Platform for Funds.

    65,000 people benefitting from improved urban infrastructure and services


    Sustainable Development Goals

    Donor-financed operations through our trust funds make a direct contribution to several of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our collective actions unlock billions of euros in investment to combat climate change, eradicate poverty and fight inequality. These are some of the global goals targeted by our trust fund.

    Economic Resilience Initiative

    The Economic Resilience Initiative was requested by the 28 EU Member States in 2016 as part of the joined-up response by the EU to the challenges posed by forced displacement and migration resulting from the war in Syria.

    ERI’s ambition is to support public and private investment with high social and economic returns in order to help tackle the numerous challenges in Europe’s Southern Neighbourhood and the Western Balkans. ERI focuses on long-term, sustainable solutions that are crucial for stable development in countries that are prone to shocks.

    Donor contributions are key to reaching the ERI objectives.


    Donor-funded instrument

    ERI Fund donor contributions provide additional support to ERI operations in the form of investment grants or through financial instruments. These are used to provide concessional financing to facilitate investment in vital infrastructure and support higher risk or lower financial return investments with the potential to achieve enhanced social and economic impact.
