This report was produced as part of a wide-ranging research programme
funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) exploring
the factors constraining the provision of private finance to support
infrastructure investment in DFID’s focus countries.
This report provides an overview of the market for infrastructure
finance in Nigeria (focusing on economic infrastructure sectors: energy,
transport and water) using evidence gained from 16 consultations held
with stakeholders (in the period December 2014 to February 2015) and
complementary desk-based research.
The study provides background on the key policy reforms implemented by
the government of Nigeria in an attempt to provide a framework more
conducive for private finance; an overview of the main transactions that
have taken place across the different infrastructure sectors; and then
sets out the findings on the main factors constraining increased private
finance for infrastructure drawing largely on the views of stakeholders.
