To respond to increasing demand for clients for assistance in addressing climate change, the General Capital Increase GCI-9 commits the Bank to support mitigation and adaptation efforts of borrowing members while meeting their developmental and energy requirements.
GCI-9 sets a target of 25 percent of total lending going to a growing portfolio on climate change, environmental sustainability, and renewable energy.

At the same time, the 22 non-borrowing countries are only putting up guarantees — not actual funds — so their support of the IDB's lending operations has a minimal impact on their national budgets.
