Mobilizing Islamic Finance for Infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships observes how Islamic finance has been applied in infrastructure PPP projects, what the structural challenges and solutions are, and what can be done to deepen and broaden the use of Islamic finance for infrastructure. The report focuses on two dimensions. The first is enhancing the understanding of the building blocks of Islamic finance as they relate to the financing of PPP projects paving the way for providers of Islamic finance capital to become partners for infrastructure development. The second, and perhaps less well-understood, is exploring how Islamic finance can fit within a PPP context. The report aims to raise awareness on how best to mobilise Islamic finance for PPPs that can successfully support the provision of infrastructure and contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.
