Course Overview


The financing of infrastructure represents a major opportunity and challenge given the scale of  potential  infrastructure  development  as  a  result  of  non-availability  of  essential infrastructure coupled with paucity of funds. Traditional methods of financing infrastructure projects are no longer sufficient to finance Infrastructure projects, leading to increased use of Public Private Partnerships, and development of Infrastructure Funds as potential sources of funds.

There  has  also  been  a  change  in  approach  in  recent  years  about  "risk  sharing", "accountability" and " Value for Money" resulting in changes in how services for public sector users are procured and performance valuated.


This programme will provide participants with a sound understanding of the key issues in Infrastructure finance so that they can develop a clear understanding of the factors influencing the choice of financing methods for infrastructure projects; the motivations of the parties involved; risk evaluation and allocation; capital structuring issues; and lessons from the past.
