In light of the overwhelming needs for infrastructure finance in emerging and developing economies and the limitations facing alternative flows of financing, there is a clear role of MDBs to continue and in fact step up their activities. The Infrastructure Finance in the Developing World Working Paper Series is a joint research effort by GGGI and the G-24 that explores the challenges and opportunities for scaling up infrastructure finance in emerging markets and developing countries.
This paper assesses the challenges and trade-offs faced by the three major NDBs in emerging economies in their efforts to (1) reach the goals set by their governments, (2) obtain the resources needed to function at a meaningful scale, and (3) operate within their unique economic and political contexts.
The paper discusses general trends in involving the private sector in public projects, PPPs and asymmetric information, and policy conclusions.
This paper examines the public finance underpinnings for an enhanced focus on different types of long-term investments as well as on operations and maintenance of existing investments.
