Our Donors

The Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF)

The Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) is a multidonor technical assistance facility aimed at helping developing countries improve the quality of their infrastructure through private sector involvement. Launched in July 1999, PPIAF was developed at the joint initiative of the governments of Japan and the United Kingdom, working closely with the World Bank. PPIAF pursues its mission through channeling technical assistance to governments in developing countries on strategies and measures to tap the full potential of private involvement in infrastructure and identifying, disseminating, and promoting best practices on matters related to private involvement in infrastructure in developing countries. 

African Legal Support Facility (ALSF)

The African Legal Support Facility (ALSF), hosted by the African Development Bank, has been supporting African governments in the negotiation of complex commercial transactions since 2010. It provides assistance to African countries to strengthen their legal expertise and negotiating capacity in debt management and litigation, natural resources and extractive industries management and contracting, investment agreements, and related commercial and business transactions. ALSF also grants and advances funds to African countries for legal advice from top legal counsel in these areas. ALSF's goal is to ensure fair and balanced negotiations. Most requests for assistance relate to extractive resources contracts, public-private partnership (PPP) negotiations, commercial creditor litigation, and debt negotiations. Membership in the ALSF is open to all sovereign nations and international organizations. 

Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF)

The Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) is a member of the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB). It supports economic growth and poverty reduction in Latin America and the Caribbean through encouraging increased private investment and advancing private sector development. The MIF works with the private sector to develop, finance, and execute innovative business models that benefit entrepreneurs and poor and low-income households. It partners with a wide variety of institutions from the private, public and nonprofit sectors, evaluates results and shares lessons learned.
