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')

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
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.
