Our sectors

Infrastructure provision is a driver of economic development: increasing access to energy powers businesses, and improved transport opportunities enable better access to markets and greater labour mobility.

To deliver pioneering infrastructure that seeks to combat poverty in the poorest and most fragile countries, we focus on the following sectors.
