Project Preparation – Enabling environment: what are the prerequisites required to facilitate the preparation of quality infrastructure projects?

Globally, governments are accountable for the development of infrastructure and the delivery of basic services in an affordable and inclusive manner. The ability of governments to nurture a conducive enabling environment for infrastructure investment has often been found to be a key differentiator between countries that successfully scale up infrastructure and those that face challenges in doing so.

GI Hub and EDHECinfra release global investor study

We are pleased to share the findings of an infrastructure investment study, released today by the Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub) and EDHEC Infrastructure Institute-Singapore (EDHECinfra). The global study, which looked to identify investor expectations for the sector, found that investors have an increasing appetite for infrastructure including in emerging markets, with the number of investors looking for exposure to emerging markets set to more than double over the next 3-5 years.

PPP Risk Allocation
PPP Risk Allocation
A searchable guide on typical risk allocation in PPP transactions
PPP Risk Allocation
Allocating Risks in Public-Private Partnership Contracts.

Risk allocation is at the centre of every PPP transaction, and a deep understanding of the risk allocation arrangements is a precondition to the drafting of every PPP agreement. Search below for guidance on typical risk allocation arrangements between public and private sectors in PPP transactions.

PPP Risk Allocation Tool

As part of its leading practices mandate, the GI Hub developed a set of annotated risk allocation matrices for PPP transactions, across the transport, energy and water and waste sectors. The PPP Risk Allocation Tool should be used to provide additional guidance to countries that wish to develop a programme of bankable PPP transactions.

Reference Guide on Output Specifications for Quality Infrastructure
Practical guidance with a focus on PPPs and other long-term contracts

An output specification is a technical specification that predominantly adopts performance-based requirements to define the project scope. This Reference Guide is designed to improve the global understanding of this subject to help governments provide their citizens with quality infrastructure assets and services.

Quality Infrastructure Investment

Quality infrastructure has been a key G20 focus under the Japanese Presidency in 2019. The aim of this Reference Guide is to help governments and public sector asset managers to operationalise the dimensions of the quality infrastructure investment (QII) definition so that these are realised at the project level.

The Guide has been informed by examining how the QII dimensions have been included at contract level in 14 project case studies from a wide range of sectors and countries.

Guidance Note on National Infrastructure Banks and Similar Financing Facilities
NIBS - Guidance Tool

This Guidance Note is designed to assist governments interested in establishing, or reforming, a NIB or similar financing facility to target government policies and maximise the impact that infrastructure banks can have in delivering quality infrastructure projects, encouraging private investment and providing value for end users.

New Guidance on National Infrastructure Banks

The Guidance Note on National Infrastructure Banks and Similar Financing Facilities was created to assist governments interested in establishing, or reforming, a National Infrastructure Bank or a similar financing facility (NIB) to target government policies and maximise the impact that infrastructure banks can have in:

  • delivering quality infrastructure projects;
  • encouraging private investment; and
  • providing value for end users

Increase the positive social outcomes of large infrastructure projects for often under-served or vulnerable groups
What is Inclusive infrastructure

Inclusive Infrastructure is infrastructure development that enhances positive outcomes in social inclusivity, and ensures that no individual, community or social group is left behind or prevented from benefiting from improved infrastructure.

The Reference Tool on Inclusive Infrastructure and Social Equity presents a practical evidence-based framework for practitioners to maximise the impact of infrastructure investment on reducing inequality and promoting shared prosperity.

The framework details six Action Areas, or themes, related to infrastructure development, and provides related guidance under each, which are then illustrated by real-life examples, including the eight detailed case studies.
