Guidance Note on National Infrastructure Banks and Similar Financing Facilities

This Guidance Note has been designed to assist governments interested in establishing, or reforming, a National Infrastructure Bank or a similar financing facility (NIB). It brings together lessons learned from an examination of a wide variety of existing NIBs in both emerging markets and high-income countries, including institutions with an extensive history and those that have been established more recently. With an overall aim of helping to accelerate the flow of quality infrastructure projects, including through mobilising private capital and supporting project preparation, the analysis has sought to identify some of the unique niches and roles that such institutions can occupy and play in support of government objectives and policies in these areas.
