InfraCo Africa seeks to alleviate poverty by mobilising investment into sub-Saharan infrastructure projects:
InfraCo Africa’s support reduces risks and costs, and ensures that projects are developed to the highest standards: from a concept, to a financeable investment opportunity, to a proven operating business.
InfraCo Africa is part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG): it is managed as a private company although funded by governments in the UK (FCDO), the Netherlands (DGIS) and Switzerland (SECO). Since its establishment in 2004, InfraCo Africa has developed twenty nine projects through to Financial Close. Of these, it has successfully exited five projects and is overseeing the construction and operation of the remainder.
InfraCo Africa’s projects will improve living standards and power economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa.
