The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) is a multilateral development bank with an exclusively social mandate.
Through the provision of financing and technical expertise for projects with a high social impact in its Member States, it actively promotes social cohesion and strengthens social integration in Europe.
The CEB is a major instrument of solidarity in Europe. It finances social projects, responds to emergency situations, and improves the living conditions of the most disadvantaged population groups.
The following are the main sectors in which the CEB implements social investment projects across Europe.
- sustainable and inclusive growth
- integration of refugees, displaced persons and migrants;
- climate action: developing adaptation and mitigation measures.
The CEB carries out its work within the framework of a formal strategic plan, which guides CEB activity in the medium term. The Governing Board of the CEB has just approved the Bank’s Strategic Framework for the period 2023-2027.
