Credit Enhancement for Sustainable Infrastructure
Credit enhancement is particularly valuable for infrastructure planners in developing countries. Policy-makers in these countries face an uphill challenge in preparing projects and raising capital. They face public budgetary constraints on one side coupled with debt ceilings and narrow capital markets on the other. They all aspire to attract private capital, and this might only be realized when good project planning is combined with innovative credit enhancement.
To address this challenge, over the first half of 2018, the International Institute for Sustainable Development undertook a global survey on the credit enhancement solutions available for infrastructure projects.
