An independent study by Dalberg Global Development Advisers concludes that the DFIs are an important “Third Pillar” in the international development policies with aid and multilateral development banks being the two other pillars. They play a growing role in reaching the development goals of the governments backing them. They can also act as an important counter-cyclical force in the economic downturn.
