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.
It presents supplementary research that provides more detail on the
options that could be used to mobilise private finance for
infrastructure that are summarised in the Draft Final Report for this
research. The paper considers policy options for addressing upstream
issues, including increasing government commitment to PPP, before
turning to potential structures to improve bankability, and to mobilise
international and local finance.
The objective of the analysis is to provide options for policy makers to
consider that could in the long term enable private capital to flow to
projects without support from either donors or governments, thus
removing a major constraint to the supply of capital and where this is
not possible, to mobilise private capital in a way that minimises risks
to government as a result of any commitments that need to be made to
investors and lenders.
