With DRIVE, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs facilitates investments in infrastructural projects that contribute towards a good business climate and entrepreneurship in the priority sectors: water, climate, food security, and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). Public infrastructure projects that have a high development relevance in other sectors also can apply for DRIVE support. The overall objective of DRIVE is to contribute to inclusive and sustainable growth in developing countries.

DRIVE supports investments in expansion and/or quality improvement of public infrastructure that improve the development of the private sector by promoting entrepreneurship, productivity and employment opportunities, and by lifting wages.
