17th September 2015CEPA completed a year-long research project for DFID looking at the barriers facing the development and financing of infrastructure projects in Africa and South Asia. In particular, CEPA looked at whether limited infrastructure investment has been primarily caused by a lack of bankable projects or a lack of affordable finance. Our research focused on two aspects. The first, articulating, and to the extent possible quantifying, the nature of the problem; and the second recommending potential solutions as they relate to developing bankable projects and to improving access to finance.
A number of reports produced by CEPA have now been published, including: a synthesis report summarising all the findings, a full final report, a literature review, four country case studies, a policy options report, a report on finance for regional projects, and a report on international capital flows.
The final reports and case studies can be found here. The literature review published in March 2015 can be accessed here.
