The PIDG was set up to encourage the participation of the private sector in infrastructure provision in the poorest countries by helping to overcome the obstacles and challenges to their involvement. For further information on infrastructure provision please see our What We Do page.
Why is infrastructure required?
Low levels of infrastructure provision are a major hindrance to growth and economic development. Better infrastructure improves the quality of lives for people, leads to more efficient use of scarce resources and enables growth to take place which lifts people out of poverty in the poorest countries. Public resources for infrastructure are not enough, especially in the poorest countries.
