IFC helps develop infrastructure projects that can meaningfully improve peoples’ lives in emerging markets, with a special emphasis on fast-growing cities where there are critical needs in power, utilities, and transportation.
We offer long-term financing, industry-leading sector expertise, and an established track record in developing countries. Our focus is supporting private infrastructure projects with strong development impact whose business models can be replicated elsewhere.
As part of the World Bank Group, we also help create the conditions to attract increased private capital for infrastructure, and help structure public-private partnerships that can upgrade water systems, electricity networks, and roads.
