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.
