Project Description
The stated objective of this project is to: "increase the provision for long-term financing for infrastructure and to build capacity for infrastructure finance to promote private sector-led infrastructure development in Bangladesh." Sub-projects may be funded and implemented nationwide. Since exact locations and/or expected environmental and social footprint of the sub-projects are not fully known at this stage (and will not be known until specific proposals are received from the client), a framework approach will be adopted for the project, building on the success and lessons learned from IPFF I. All sub-projects are expected to constitute private sector activities and are executed through PFIs, which are commercial private sector financial institutions. In addition, IFC may co-finance some of the sub-projects.
