20. Sector / country strategy
Does the DFI publish sector or (multi-)country strategies?
A sector strategy outlines the approach an institution takes to investing in particular sectors. This may take the form of sectoral theories of change.
A (multi-)country strategy paper sets out the organisation’s planned approach and activities in the recipient country, group of countries or region. For it to be accepted it needs to be a detailed document rather than just a paragraph on the organisation’s website.
Additional definitions and notes
If the organisation follows the strategy of a parent or related organisation, a statement clarifying this is needed on the website along with a link to the relevant strategy document. Similarly, if the organisation supports a country-led or developed strategy, this must be explicitly stated on the website and the link to the relevant strategy document needs to be provided.
