Tiny 3f4ovsmmbdxbpawcpbehtxpgfizb7ic3h0hmbav5blq

Continuous and close public-private collaboration at a country level remains crucial to unlocking the capital necessary to bridge the enduring infrastructure financing gap. The initiative aims to help selected governments to streamline their infrastructure project pipeline and accelerate project financing through a sustained public-private dialogue.
 
To achieve this goal, the initiative is convening national multi-stakeholder Working Groups that can speak with a unified voice to help the selected governments focus on substantive issues of infrastructure financing and development to address ongoing bottlenecks. Recognized and endorsed by the respective governments, the Working Groups serve as ongoing platforms for business leaders and key stakeholders to speak with a coordinated business voice. This collaborative approach aims at fostering an enabling environment for private sector participation in the financing of the national infrastructure projects. The Working Groups are currently active in Brazil, Indonesia and Argentina, with additional networks being launched in Vietnam, India and Jordan.

Objectives

The aim of this project is to:


  • Analyse key challenges related to infrastructure financing at a country level. 

  • Formulate country-specific recommendations for the public and private sectors in critical fields such as planning, project preparation, financing and capacity building.


The ultimate objectives of the initiative are to improve the country's investment climate, deepen its capital markets and ultimately accelerate the development of its infrastructure plan.
