As envisioned by NDB’s Articles of Agreement, the Bank seeks to complement the efforts of multilateral and regional financial institutions to support global growth and development. NDB places a strong emphasis on building and implementing effective partnerships, as promoted by SDG 17 on Partnerships for the Goals, to accelerate member countries’ endeavors dedicated to sustainable development.

Partnerships support the achievement of NDB’s mandate by enhancing the Bank’s capacity to mobilize resources for infrastructure and sustainable development projects, while also fostering the exchange of knowledge, human resources and information. NDB collaborates with a range of stakeholders in the global development community, including development agencies in member countries, international organizations, development finance institutions, commercial banks, enterprises, non-governmental organizations, universities and think tanks.
