Private participation in infrastructure

This page in:

Ppi_thumbnail The newly overhauled Private participation in Infrastructure (PPI) Project Database has been launched. The World Bank and the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) have compiled data on 3,000 infrastructure projects in 150 low- and middle-income countries, covering projects in the energy, telecommunications, transport, and water and sewerage sectors.

View snapshots of various sectors, regions and countries or see a number of different rankings. You can also build your own report using up to 30 data fields. The database spans 1984 to 2004 and includes the contractual arrangements used to attract private investment, the sources and destination of investment flows, and information on main investors.

A few fun facts:

  • Latin America (led by Brazil, Argentina and Mexico) has the largest number of PPI projects.
  • SUEZ has the most projects worldwide, primarily in the energy and water sectors.
  • More than half of the world's top 10 sponsors (by size of investment) are telecom firms.
