Germany holds nearly 2 % of the Ordinary Capital of the IDB, and it has an Executive Director on the Board of Directors.

• Germany has contributed US$ 241 million to the Fund for Special Operations, a concessional fund for the low-income countries in Latin America (grants to Haiti, low-interest loans to Bolivia, Guyana, Honduras, and Nicaragua).

• The IDB granted debt-relief to the five “Highly Indebted Poor Countries” (Bolivia, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, and Nicaragua); this led to the need for a replenishment of the Fund for Special Operations, approved in 2011.

• Germany has contributed to trust funds at the IDB, including contributions to the Sustainable Energy and Climate Change (SECCI) Multi-Donor Trust Fund, from GIZ and KfW.
• The IDB/Germany Strategic Partnership Agreement for Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency (SPA) approved activities for a US$1 million.

• German institutions also provide co-financing for IDB loans and non-reimbursable grants., as indicated in the examples below: • In Haiti, the IDB, Germany’s KfW and OFID, OPEC’s fund for international development, are providing the funds to finance a three-year, $48.8 million rehabilitation contract to restore the Péligre hydroelectric plant, the country’s principal renewable energy source.

• In 2012, the IDB approved a loan for $200 million to Uruguay to finance construction of a 530 MW combined-cycle gas power plant to help diversify the country's energy mix in an environmentally sustainable manner. Germany’s KfW contributed US$70 million to the project.
