How we operate
PIDG operates along the project life cycle and across the capital structure, to help projects overcome financial, technical or environmental challenges, creating investment-ready, bankable infrastructure opportunities.
PIDG at a glance
The new PIDG Ltd. “holding company” governance structure, established in 2018, enables greater clarity and unity of direction from the PIDG Ltd. Board and Executive team to the companies and provides more effective direction, guidance and control.
Project Life Cycle
Established in 2002, PIDG has addressed market failures prevalent in its target markets in sub-Saharan Africa and south and south-east Asia.
It has done so by demonstrating to the market at large the commercial viability of private infrastructure investment in the poorest countries.
Upstream Technical Assistance
Our purpose is to combat poverty in the poorest and most fragile countries through pioneering infrastructure to help economies grow and change people’s lives.TA grants support the PIDG Companies at any stage of the project lifecycle. DevCo helps fund PPP advisory services to governments, delivered through the IFC.
