Financing Africa’s infrastructure deficit: From development banking to long-term investing
Infrastructure development in Africa, and the reduction of its massive infrastructure deficit, has been constrained by limited domestic resources and a reliance on overseas development assistance.

This paper, from the Brookings Institution, studies the appropriate financing structure of infrastructure investment and financing in Africa.
