Annual Report

Results by Industry

Our leadership role in sustainable private sector development reflects a special advantage—the depth and breadth of expertise we have acquired over more than 50 years of helping emerging-market firms succeed and grow.

We provide our clients the right mix of capabilities to address their needs, delivering the best of what IFC has to offer.


About 2.5 billion people lack proper sanitation facilities in developing countries. At least 1.6 billion have no electricity. And 884 million can’t get clean water.

IFC helps increase access to power, transport, and water by financing infrastructure projects and advising client governments on public-private partnerships.

We add value by devising innovative projects and public-private partnerships in difficult markets. We mitigate risk and leverage specialized financial structuring and other capabilities. A significant part of our advisory work is supported by other parts of the World Bank Group and donor partners.
