GIB recently published a scoping study of early-stage project preparation entitled “Unleashing Private Capital Investments for Sustainable Infrastructure Greenfield Projects”, which was funded by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs. At present, an ever-decreasing amount of sustainable infrastructure is funded by public financing from state budgets and international cooperation programmes. The mobilisation of private capital for infrastructure financing is therefore of great importance. Since early-stage project development is the most capital-starved segment of the infrastructure funding cycle, the development of new (in financial terms: greenfield), bankable projects should be promoted. In this regard, the financing and execution of bankability studies is the main prerequisite for unleashing private funding for sustainable infrastructure. This study highlights the lack of an entity which funds bankability studies for sustainable infrastructure projects (Sustainable Infrastructure Bankability Study Fund) and the need for more information on existing funding opportunities.
