Working throughout the project lifecycle, we de-risk projects, transform markets and build local capacity, creating a deep and lasting impact.
Since our founding in 2002, we have deployed $1.9 billion in official development assistance, which has been deployed and recycled into $5.2 billion in investment commitments. These have led to $40 billion in investment in PIDG projects, with almost half of that amount coming from the private sector. 211 of our projects have reached financial close. In total, approximately 223 million people in 40 countries have or are expected to gain access to new or improved infrastructure as a result of our work.
Safety for all involved in our work, gender equality and climate considerations are at the very core of what we do.
We work to overcome the multiple challenges and market failures that prevent the deployment of infrastructure services in Sub-Saharan Africa and South-East Asia.
We have always worked in spaces that receive little or no attention – a large proportion of our activities take place beyond the comfort zone of most infrastructure investors. Out of the more than 200 projects that have reached financial close, more than 50% are in Fragile or Conflict-Affected States, and more than 50% are in the poorest Least Developed Countries.
