|Not applicable||AIIB does not have country-level strategies.|
As a member-driven bank, the AIIB does not have country-level strategies or sector quotas. These may be introduced in the future. COVID-19 has led to an expansion in membership – 10 countries in the last year have been added, including a number outside of Asia.
As per its mandate, the Bank operates on a project-to-project basis, without regard to concentration in any specific member country. There is no country-level financing quota, but the Bank has set a financing ceiling of 15% for all operations in non-regional member countries.
The AIIB does not look at National Determined Contributions (NDCs) at the project screening stage – these elements come in at a later point. This is an important point due to the role of fossil fuels in NDCs in Asia – 12 NDCs across the Asian region include gas and six NDCs include coal in their plans.
