Our mission

Our mission is to help people build better lives and countries achieve peace and sustainable development. 

Our vision 

Our vision is a world where people can live full lives supported by appropriate, sustainable and resilient infrastructure and by the efficient, transparent use of public resources in procurement and project management.

Our purpose

We help people build better lives and countries achieve peace and sustainable development.

We bring to this task the values and principles of the United Nations and the innovation, boldness, speed and efficiency of a self-financed institution. 

We bring the highest international standards to what we do, while respecting local contexts. We do this as our contribution to tackling the huge challenges of the 21st century.

We provide practical solutions to assist our partners to save lives, protect people and their rights, and to build a better world. 

We aspire to be a leader in the efforts to channel private sector investments for social and environmental impact while addressing the immense needs for sustainable development. 

What drives us is a passion to fight inequalities and to provide opportunities to those most vulnerable. This means we often work in the most challenging environments, building foundations for communities to function and people to live with dignity and respect. 

We are passionate about quality: In our people and in what we do. 

We earn the trust of those we work with by caring about what they value, and by delivering on our promise to always act in the service of people in need.
