  • Our activities in Sub-Saharan Africa, Caribbean and Pacific.

  • Article
  • The EIB invests in a wide range of projects in sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific and the Overseas Countries and Territories, from providing the financial support to allow microfinance institutions to lend small amounts to microenterprises and innovators, up to large infrastructure projects.

    What all of these projects have in common is their impact. Our activities in the ACP region are designed to improve lives, create opportunities for people and for businesses and support sustainable economic development, in line with the EU’s New Consensus for Development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

    In 2018, we invested €1.3 billion in projects across sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific, and the Overseas Countries and Territories.
