Where we are working
Mobilised US$2bn investment
Created 8,240 jobs
Benefiting 13m people
Over the last ten years we’ve received US$126 million in funding and have developed projects that mobilised US$2 billion of investment, from the private sector and from Development Finance Institutions (DFIs). This investment has provided new infrastructure for approximately 13 million people, improving living standards and powering economic growth. Our projects employ over 8,000 people either during construction or once new services are operational.
Over the next ten years we will do even more.
We are actively deepening our pipeline and growing our business, with the result that each year we commit support to more early-stage projects. The dependency between power and economic development is just one reason why power will continue to be a focus for us. However, we are also increasing our interest in water and marine transport: seeking innovative ways to incorporate water initiatives into power projects and so attract investment into frontier markets. We continue to focus on innovative or pioneering projects and will increase the volume of pilot projects we provide capital and support to, getting projects operational sooner and demonstrating their viability.
