The Premier Bank for Emerging Economies

The New Development Bank (NDB) is a multilateral development bank established by Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) with the purpose of mobilising resources for infrastructure and sustainable development projects in emerging markets and developing countries (EMDCs).

Our strong mandate and potential put us in a unique position to contribute to global growth and development.


Working hand in hand with our member countries and stakeholders, we leverage capital for development purposes to accelerate economic growth, as well as to achieve environmental and social sustainability to improve the lives of people in our member countries.


NDB strives to act as a catalyst in bridging the gap between the availability of financial resources and the growing needs of our founding members and EMDCs.

Emerging Markets

We play an active role in expanding our impact on EMDCs by providing financing for infrastructure and sustainable development projects.


At NDB, sustainability is at the core of our mandate. We seek to ensure that all projects financed by the Bank are implemented in a sustainable way and their ESG impacts are assessed, minimised and mitigated during project implementation.

Our Strategy

Our General Strategy for 2022–2026 sets the course for our evolution into a leading provider of solutions for infrastructure and sustainable development for EMDCs.

Building a Sustainable Future

NDB is dedicated to developing solutions to create a sustainable future for the world where we live. We integrate the principles of sustainability and sound management in everything we do.
