Other Development Financing Institutions
|Description:||There are many other development finance institutions. Some of these are multilateral and some bilateral.|
See this overview of development financial institutions from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
The African Development Bank, for example, is a regional multilateral development bank, and has 53 regional member countries in Africa and 24 non-regional member countries (non-African countries). It has given support in various sectors, including the environment (such as environmental legislation, governance and institutional capacity building for the environment sector); agriculture and agro-industries; and human and social development.
There is additionally a New Development Bank for BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), which now has an Environmental and Social Framework, but this does not specifically include animal welfare.
There are also some privately-owned development banks. One of these, ING, which is a multinational bank with Dutch roots (and acquired Barings Bank), has a progressive Environmental and Social Risk Framework, which includes animal welfare (Section 4.3.). Unusually, this covers all operations involving animal welfare, and not just farming (i.e., pets, entertainment, experimentation and trade).
