Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development
The establishment of Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development in 1961 was an inspired
decision reflecting the wisdom and great enlightment of the political leadership of the State of Kuwait
for supporting developing countries in their efforts to achieve economic and social development.
The Fund’s operations were confined to Arab countries up to mid 1974 when the law of the Fund
was amended and its capital was increased from KD 200 million to KD 1,000 million (about US$
3,400 million), with the scope of operations extended to include in addition to Arab countries other
developing countries.
Later in 1981, the Law of the Fund was further amended to increase the Fund’s capital from
KD 1,000 million to KD 2,000 (about US$ 6,800 million) in response to the increasing requests for
funding projects and the rise in the cost of development operations, in general.
The Fund which is the first development institution in the world to be established by a developing
country has been active in supporting developing countries in their development efforts over the last
fifty years. Over the years, financing of projects has been the principal activity of Kuwait Fund. In
addition to project lending operations, the Fund also extended technical assistance to help countries
and institutions in capacity building to strengthen and accelerate their development efforts. Apart
from those activities, the Fund, acting on behalf of the State of Kuwait, also made contributions to
the resources of regional and international financing institutions, and undertook the responsibility
for administering grants extended directly by the Government of the State of Kuwait to Arab and
other developing states.
Up until 2000, the Fund’s operations focused on financing projects in such sectors as agriculture,
transport, communication, energy, industry, water and sewerage. In the following years, the Fund
activities included also lending to finance projects in the health and education sectors, with the aim
of reinforcing the contribution of other sectors to the development objectives of recipients, and to
help them in their efforts to achieve the targets of the Millennium Development Goals. Total loan
commitments at about US$ 17.6 billion as of June 30, 2014 benefitted 103 countries, including 16
Arab countries, 40 African countries, 19 in East, South Asia and the Pacific, 17 in Central Asia and
Europe, and 11 in Latin America and the Caribbean region.
In addition to loans, the Fund provided financing for a variety of technical services aimed at
helping recipients to carry out certain activities to facilitate the implementation of development
operations. Such services include, among other things, the preparation of project feasibility studies,
expert services for assisting in the planning and execution of development projects and programmes,
and in training, especially for upgrading the technical skills and capacities of the staff assigned for
the management and operation of projects, as deemed necessary during project appraisal. Hence
training was often included as a component of the financed project.

The total net value of technical assistance and grants extended by the Fund reached about US$
428 million on June 30, 2014.
Apart from the aid provided directly by the Government and Kuwait Fund to developing
countries, the State of Kuwait also makes contributions to the resources of a number of regional
and international institutions involved in assisting developing countries in their economic and
social development. Over the past years, the Fund made contributions on behalf of the State of
Kuwait to the capital and replenishment of resources of some regional and international financing
institutions.
In certain circumstances, the Government of the State of Kuwait provides assistance in the
form of grants to finance urgently needed projects including schools, hospitals, housing facilities and
other social amenities especially in post-conflict situations or where countries faced consequences
of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and extreme drought. Such grants are normally
administered and supervised by the Fund. All projects financed from the proceeds of government
grants are governed by the procedures applicable to Kuwait Fund supported projects, with due
consideration to the nature and objectives of the former type of projects.
The total value of grants extended by the government reached around $4,490 million on June 30,
2014. The beneficiaries included 16 Arab countries, 18 African countries, and three Asian countries,
one country in Latin America and the Caribbean region, and one institution.
Recognizing the importance of advice and consultation, the Fund has since its inception availed
its partners of the advisory services of its professional staff in the field of engineering, economics,
finance and law. Over time, they have helped recipient countries in the various project cycle activities
including, inter alia, advice on the preparation of feasibility studies, conditions of contract and
tender documents, selection of consultants, contractors, and suppliers, as well as sharing with them
the Fund’s experiences and lessons drawn in respect of similar operations. The advisory activities
have been a major part of the daily responsibilities, duties, and tasks of the Fund’s professional
staff.
The Fund’s activities are guided by flexible policies, simplified procedures, and transparent
practices with the aim of sparing recipients the burden of unduly rigid operational guidelines and
directives. The Fund’s main concern in applying its policies and lending conditions is to ensure the
timely and orderly implementation of projects and the realization of their expected benefits.
Having been involved in development operations over a relatively long period, the Fund has
gained considerable experience, with lessons drawn leading to the adoption and the implementation
of best practices in executing development projects.
In conjunction with its long standing development efforts, the Fund has over time been able to
maintain close cooperation with its various development partners and contribute to the promotion
of friendly relations between them and the State of Kuwait.
