Strengthening the regulatory, institutional, and funding frameworks
The World Bank has been the main source of Vietnam’s IWT investment finance for more than a decade, but investment needs remain large and future sources of finance will need to be diversified. This report, prepared by a World Bank team, examines the current regulatory framework, institutional structure, and funding framework for IWT. The report suggests measures to strengthen infrastructure, regulatory, management, and the funding framework. Taken together, these measures would impro...

New Policy Solutions to Old Problems
The situation of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in Latin America and the Caribbean continues to be dire. This book uses an original database of SOE performance that shows that every year about one-third of such enterprises in the region report losses (up to 70 percent in some countries) and that they require between 0.3 and one percentage point of GDP in fiscal transfers to cover such losses. Countries in the region have adopted centralized agency monitoring of their SOEs, managed to reduc...

INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN PRACTICE
The Public Investment Management Reference Guide aims to fill the gap between what should be done and the immediate demand for pragmatic guidance from countries on how to adapt the implied reforms. It conveys country experiences and good international practices as a basis for decisions on how to address a country-specific PIM reform agenda. The country references are drawn largely from previous diagnostics and technical assistance work of the World Bank.

Quick Reads on InfraFinance
Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) can sometimes be perceived as a means for delivering infrastructure for free. A more nuanced view is that they are a mechanism to overcome fiscal constraints, a tool to realize public investments—especially large public infrastructure—when the government does not have the resources to implement these projects on budget. Some argue, and perhaps rightly so, that often governments enter PPP contracts without fully understanding their fiscal impli...

At the start of 2020, COVID-19 spread across the world at an unyielding pace. What began as global jitters has evolved into unprecedented disturbances in the economy, health systems and daily life. In Asia and the Pacific, the impacts of the pandemic have reverberated among its population of more than 4 billion and in its network of vital supply chains. In the face of such challenges, the region must respond quickly and collectively to save lives and build resilience against future pandemi...

Decades of high economic growth in the Asia-Pacific region have transformed its socioeconomic landscape – lifting a billion people out of extreme poverty in the past two decades and raising living standards for even greater numbers. However, such growth has been accompanied by growing inequality of income and opportunity and is beginning to breach planetary limits, thus endangering the well-being of future generations. Yet, the Asia-Pacific region is not on track to achieve any ...

LESSONS LEARNED SINCE THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTORS IN EMERGING MARKETS TODAY
Every financial system has faced or will face a crisis at some point. But even in the absence of a crisis, the extraordinary growth in credit over the last two decades has resulted in an increase of non-performing loans (NPLs), which are an unavoidable by-product of lending. This can put economies at risk. When not addressed, distressed assets can grow to reach critical thresholds that can slow down, or even prevent, economic recovery and increase unemployment, creating a vicious circle th...

Nature-based Solutions (NbS) can be used as a cost effective way to build infrastructure resilience in response to a changing climate, while also delivering a range of other societal benefits. Yet, many business aren’t aware of these benefits, and implementation of NbS by the private sector (including businesses that plan, design, construct and fund infrastructure) has been limited in Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC). As a region where infrastructure investments are required du...

EBRD Impact Brief
Private equity (PE) remains an underutilised source of funding for firms in the EBRD regions. This EBRD Impact Brief explores how private equity can help companies prosper. It reports on a detailed study of both textual and financial data from more than 170 private equity funds that the EBRD invested in over a period of 25 years.1 The findings show that PE funds follow a rich set of strategies to create value during the life of a deal. These strategies typically increase operational effici...

I n the last few years, IFC has prioritized an approach to creating bankable private sector infrastructure opportunities that we call “Scaling”—focusing not on single asset development, but on a holistic approach that creates a pipeline of infrastructure projects. The essence of the Scaling approach is to develop a robust public-private partnership (PPP) model for a single deal and then replicate it. This spreads costs, enhances impact, and encourages programmat...
