The OPEC Fund for International Development

The OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) is the development finance institution established by the Member States of OPEC in 1976 as a collective channel of aid to the developing countries. OFID works in cooperation with developing country partners and the international donor community to stimulate economic growth and alleviate poverty in all disadvantaged regions of the world. It does this by providing financing to build essential infrastructure, strengthen social services delivery and promote productivity, competitiveness and trade. OFID’s work is people-centered, focusing on projects that meet basic needs – such as food, energy, clean water and sanitation, healthcare and education – with the aim of encouraging self-reliance and inspiring hope for the future.

Furthermore, OFID provides financial assistance focusing on activities that increase South-South and North-South cooperation and enhance capacity-building, including human resource development, particularly in the LDCs. In the context of the 4th Off-Grid Lighting Conference and Exhibition, to be held in Dubai during October 26-29, 2015, OFID offers a sponsorship to a number of delegates from developing countries, representing different regions, to take part in this four-day event.
