Official Development Finance for Infrastructure (with a special focus on multilateral development banks)

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.
