Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.


Mediterrania Capital IV Mid-Cap L.P. (MC IV) is a generalist private equity fund with a target fund size of EUR 350m, currently being raised by Mediterrania Capital Partners (MCP). MC IV will target majority and significant minority investments in Mid-Cap corporates operating primarily in North-Africa, with some allocation to Francophone Sub-Saharan Africa.


Through providing growth capital to Mid-Cap corporates in its target region, MC IV aims to partner with management teams to support them with scaling existing operations and further institutionalization.


This investment fits FMO's strategy of deepening relationships with existing partners in the African private equity landscape, and contributes to improving access to finance for Mid-Cap corporates operating in North- and Sub-Saharan Africa.


The E&S categorization of the Fund is A, based on the pipeline and on the Fund Manager's strategy. The Manager has established a functioning E&S management system with no material gaps with FMO's requirements. Proper ESG policies and procedures are in place and well embedded in the investment process (e.g., clear E&S due diligence process, external ESG audits against IFC Performance Standards on portfolio companies, clear roles and responsibilities in the team, KPI's on ESG and even a policy on ESG related to their exits). MCP has demonstrated a proven commitment towards achieving positive climate impact through developing a climate strategy and will support investees to better assess, manage and monitor climate risks.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.

Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW). A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order.
