Platform Officer (MCDF)
The Multilateral Cooperation Center for Development Finance (MCDF) is a multilateral platform designed to increase high-quality connectivity investments in developing countries through wider application of accredited international financial institutions (IFIs) standards and to encourage other investors and financial institutions to adopt these standards. The MCDF activities include information sharing, building capacity and project preparation.
The MCDF comprises:
  • A Collaboration Platform, overseen and directed by the Coordination Committee (CC), to promote communication and collaboration among the IFIs and other development partners about their plans and activities relating to infrastructure and connectivity investment, investment standards, debt sustainability and other social and economic issues that help ensure the sustainability and transparency of investments.
  • A Finance Facility, overseen and directed by the Governing Committee (GC), that would fund grants:
    • To the accredited implementing partners of the MCDF when they carry out preparation activities for connectivity projects, prioritizing projects that are undertaken in collaboration with new development partners interested in implementing projects with stronger investment standards;
    • For capacity building activities for developing countries and/or new development partners in the areas of sustainable investments; and
    • For activities proposed by the collaboration platform.
  • A Secretariat to support the day-to-day operations of the MCDF led by a CEO.
  • An Administrator to provide corporate, mainly financial, services to the MCDF.
The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) serves as the Administrator of the MCDF and host of the Secretariat with effect from June 30, 2020. The Secretariat will provide program management and administrative services to support the Finance Facility and the Collaboration Platform. It will be administratively established by, but functionally independent from, AIIB. Recognizing its functional independence, the Secretariat will be accountable to the GC for its substantive activities while remaining accountable to the Administrator for complying with AIIB's administrative rules and procedures. The operations of the MCDF, including positions of the MCDF Secretariat, are subject to the availability of funds contributed to the MCDF. Notwithstanding this, MCDF Secretariat staff will be hired under AIIB staff rules, receiving the same remuneration and benefits as regular AIIB staff with an equivalent level of seniority.
