IFC has embarked on an ambitious new strategy to stimulatemore investment activity by Creating Markets, including in Low Income Countries(LICs) and Fragile and Conflict Situations (FCS). This new strategy requires ashift in our approach to proactively create, deepen and expand markets andprojects rather than waiting for clients to propose projects for IFC tofinance. This strategy also relies on upstream work with Governments and WorldBank colleagues to enable private sector solutions and financing. We call thisapproach the âCascade.â Working with clients, we will first seek private sectorsolutions to address development challenges, where such solutions are advisableand can be effective, and reserve public financing for projects only when otheroptions are suboptimal.
