IFC is working to promote innovative solutions to today’s toughest challenges in infrastructure—from helping viable projects get started to offering new models of financing to support them. We call this approach “working upstream”—ahead of where multilateral development banks and commercial financiers typically get involved in the project cycle.

Below are examples of IFC’s innovative approach to infrastructure support. Learn about these initiatives and reach out to us on other areas where we could work together. Please contact us at for more information or to share your ideas.
