Advisory Services



DevCo is a multi-donor facility that helps the world’s poorest countries improve basic public services such as power, water and sanitation, transportation, and telecommunications, among others. DevCo was established by IFC and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) to support IFC’s work to increase private sector participation in infrastructure. In addition to DFID, other donors include the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).

Regional Multi-Donor Facilities
These are multi-donor funded initiatives that leverage IFC and partner resources to support private sector development in specific regions such as Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East & North Africa, Latin America & the Caribbean, South Asia and Southeast Europe. Partners include governments, regional development institutions, and private companies.

The Private Infrastructure Development Group is an innovative multi-donor organization constituted in 2002. Its objective is to encourage private infrastructure investment in developing countries that contributes to economic growth and poverty reduction.

The Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility is a multi-donor technical assistance facility created to help governments in developing countries to improve the quality of physical infrastructure through partnerships with the private sector. PPIAF helps governments to create policy, legal, and regulatory measures as well as capacity building to strengthen their ability to design, manage, and regulate reform programs. Capacity building and training is also provided for policy makers, regulators, and civil society groups.

The mandate of the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid is to fund, design, demonstrate, and document output-based aid approaches to improve delivery of basic infrastructure and social services to the poor in developing countries. It encourages the use of explicit performance-based subsidies to support the delivery of basic services, such as water and health care, where policy concerns would justify public funding to complement or replace user-fees.
