FUNDING WINDOWS - Infrastructure Investment

The Infrastructure Funding Window looks to co-finance light infrastructure investment projects that are necessary to unlock job creation potential in a particular area.

These projects could include providing critical missing infrastructure that creates trading opportunities; enhances access to markets; improves the business environment for enterprises and catalyses employment linked investment.

The key characteristics of competitive infrastructure projects include: large scale impact; contribution to systemic change; innovation; value for money; a clear link to job creation, and a demonstrable capacity to implement.

An example of a project funded through the Infrastructure window is the Akwandze project.
