As a result, the approach taken in this report is qualitative and conceptual, drawing from our experience to gauge the current use of these instruments, ...

This paper examines how pension funds, insurance companies and asset managers approach environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities in their portfolio investments, and whether current investment governance standards in legal and regulatory frameworks encourage or discourage them from integrating ESG factors in investment decision-making.1 Concerns have been raised that investment governance standards may be unduly restrictive and so discourage institutional investors ...

The checklist takes the form mainly of YES/NO questions. Itemised lists are provided in many cases, but as these may not be exhaustive, a catchall “other” choice is typically included for which a specific answer may be input. The checklist also allows respondents to identify issues for which follow-up action might be needed, as well as issues which may be described as “in progress”, such as actions currently being considered or under development but not yet implemen...

Large-scale port projects have irreversible effects on land use and multiple impacts on the local economy and local community. They affect the way that the regional and national economy operates as a whole, with major impacts on regional transport systems. Port planners make better decisions when these broad impacts are examined as part of the development of a national freight transport and logistics strategy. Private investment in port terminals is also facilitated by the certainty engend...

This report sets out several of the recent advances, and suggests the most promising approaches, to the quantification and valuation of some of the wider economic benefits that flow from transport-related development. Economic appraisal can offer decision-makers important insights into the expected socio-economic impacts of transport projects. The sophistication of modern supply chains and the growing prominence of the services sector have increased the interest of decision-makers in econo...

A primer
The World Bank Group prepared this primer as an important first step toward gender equality in PPP projects. The primer consolidates and draws from a wide spectrum of examples that cut across sectors to demonstrate how infrastructure, its development, and the policies and regulations governing its construction and operation, can play a role in closing gaps between women and men. It pinpoints approaches for ensuring that projects not only do no harm, but also serve as vehicles for empowerme...

Policy Paper on Infrastructure
While almost all cities and towns in economies where the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) invests receive a regular municipal waste collection service of some kind, service quality and delivery are frequently unreliable and inefficient. Coverage focuses primarily or exclusively on urban areas and, in many cases, once the waste has been collected, it is simply dumped at a nearby location, with little consideration of the consequences for public health, resource conser...

This paper considers supply and demand determinants of MDBs’ current guarantee products, addresses the requirements of private sector investors, and identifies ways to close the gaps between private sector needs and the ability of MDBs to scale up risk mitigation mechanisms. The main conclusion from this analysis is that MDBs’ business models impose significant limitations on the further use of guarantees. A possible alternative to overcome these limitations is the creation of ...

The spot market began operation in 2006, amidst adequate generation capacity albeit highly concentrated among few players. The reforms have successfully introduced market-driven forces to system operation and spot price sign...

Since its inception, the market has been adapted by competitive market reforms and adaptations due to government-driven public policy objectives. This paper analyzes the experience of Peru with power markets, including market design, implementation, and outcomes. A cost-based power pool with locational marginal prices was established overnight, with bilateral contr...

The Colombian power market was established in 1995, driven primarily by concerns about the reliability of supply in the largely hydro-based domestic power system. The power sector reform was expected to help avoid blackouts by attracting private investment and increasing the efficiency of existing capacity. However, two decades after its inception, the market has not been successful in providing reliable supply along competitive outcomes.

How Countries Can Afford the Infrastructure They Need while Protecting the Planet
This report aims to shift the debate regarding investment needs away from a simple focus on spending more and toward a focus on spending better on the right objectives, using relevant metrics. It does so by offering a careful and systematic approach to estimating the funding needs to close the service gaps in water and sanitation, transportation, electricity, irrigation, and flood protection. Exploring thousands of scenarios, this report finds that funding needs depend on the service goals...

ADB’s new publication shows how governments and their development partners can use PPPs to promote more inclusive and sustainable growth. The study finds that successful PPP projects are predicated on well-designed contracts, a stable economy, good governance and sound regulations, and a high level of institutional capacity to handle PPPs.
