The Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG)
The Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) established in 2002 is an innovative infrastructure finance organisation which encourages and mobilises private investment in pioneering infrastructure in the frontier markets of sub-Saharan Africa and south and south-east Asia. PIDG's purpose is to combat poverty in the poorest and most fragile countries through pioneering infrastructure to help economies grow and change people's lives.
The PIDG Companies
PIDG operates through three business lines: Upstream Technical Assistance ('technical assistance and project preparation') (DevCo and TAF); Develop - Investor ('project development') (InfraCo Africa Development, InfraCo Africa Investment, InfraCo Asia Development and InfraCo Asia Investment) and Credit Solutions ('project financing and investment') (The Emerging Africa Infrastructure Fund (EAIF) and GuarantCo). In addition, PIDG Companies Green Africa Power (GAP), and Infrastructure Crisis Facility Debt Pool (ICF-DP) were established to address a specific market failure - these are now closed). Together, these are the PIDG Companies ('Facilities').
All the PIDG Companies have been set up to address the market failures that have created constraints to private investment in infrastructure service provision.
The PIDG Results Monitoring Database
The PIDG Results Monitoring Database is used to capture the predicted and, where possible, actual development impact of all PIDG-supported projects. The data tracks projects against a number of results monitoring indicators (as detailed in the PIDG Results Monitoring Handbook) and enables PIDG to report data at two stages in the project development cycle – (I) the predicted development impact of projects at financial close and, where possible, (II) the actual development impact when a project is fully operational and delivering services on the ground. See the glossary on the Help page for further details.
(I) The predicted development impact of PIDG-supported projects that have reached Financial Close (including those where the Loan or Guarantee has been redeemed) can be found on the Aggregate Data Table when filtering by Status: Financially Closed.
(II) PIDG Post Completion Monitoring: A list of all operational PIDG-supported projects is also available. Adding the 'Actual' fields into the project data table using the toolbar will allow users to create a comparison of predicted and actual development impact for PIDG-supported projects which are fully constructed and operational.
