The Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG)
The Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) was constituted as a multi-donor organisation to encourage private infrastructure investments in developing countries to enhance economic growth and poverty reduction. The PIDG mission is to mobilise private-sector investment to assist developing countries to provide infrastructure vital to boost their economic growth and combat poverty.
The PIDG Facilities
Since its formation, PIDG has established technical assistance and project preparation Facilities (DevCo and TAF), project development Facilities (InfraCo Africa Development and InfraCo Asia Development) and project financing and investment Facilities (The Emerging Africa Infrastructure Fund (EAIF), Green Africa Power (GAP), GuarantCo, InfraCo Africa Investment, InfraCo Asia Investment and the Infrastructure Crisis Facility Debt Pool (ICF-DP)). Together, these are the PIDG Facilities.
All the PIDG Facilities 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.
