The Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) is an innovative multi-donor organisation constituted in 2002. Its objective is to encourage private infrastructure investment in developing countries that contributes to economic growth and poverty reduction. The PIDG has established a range of facilities and investment vehicles which provide varying types of financial, practical and strategic support in order to realise this objective.
Donors meet at least twice a year with the various PIDG facilities and the Programme Management Unit to review progress and discuss and agree future policy and direction. The UK Department for International Development (DFID) is the lead donor.
Information on where the PIDG works is available on the PIDG website.
