In addition to individual projects, we support programmatic approaches that can be replicated and scaled. We also encourage standardization of contracts to facilitate the aggregation of multiple underlying assets; an important consideration for institutional investors. And, we combine funding with an agile, hands-on team of experts, to complement and expand the capacity of our implementing partners and beneficiary countries.
Our global portfolio supports projects across economic infrastructure sectors—including energy, transport, water, sewage and sanitation, municipal solid waste, information and communications technology—as well as social infrastructure such as healthcare and educational facilities. Within these economic infrastructure sectors, the GIF also focuses on cross-cutting thematic areas, including climate-smart and connectivity & Integration. The GIF also adheres to a robust selection criterion to ensure that best practices and high standards are observed in the projects we support.
Our strong partnerships are the cornerstone of the GIF’s work. Together with our donors, other development finance institutions, country governments, and the experience of private sector investors and financiers, we are able to leverage our collective knowledge and resources to find solutions to sustainable infrastructure financing challenges. It is through the GIF’s Advisory Council that we are able to function as a global collaboration platform, comprised of our Funding Partners, Technical Partners, Advisory Partners, and Beneficiary Partners. The Advisory Council has been bi-annually convening for its Advisory Council Meetings since April of 2015.
