Infrastructure, comprising water and sanitation, transport, energy, and communications, underpins economic growth, poverty alleviation, and human development. Yet, as the populations of developing countries are expected to grow, especially with rapid urbanisation, existing resources fall short of bridging the infrastructure investment gap.
1. Development partners assist developing country governments in enhancing the investment climate, both broadly and within specific infrastructure sectors.
The OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) captures the flows of Official Development Finance (ODF) for infrastructure, which include Official Development Assistance (ODA) and Other Official Flows (OOF). The ODF for infrastructure data is disaggregated into four sectors and 45 sub-sectors. In this context, quantitative and qualitative research is conducted to analyse strategies and activities of development partners in supporting projects and in mobilising private sector resources for infrastructure in developing countries.
