PIDG operates along the project life cycle and across the capital structure, to help projects overcome the financial, technical or environmental challenges, creating investment-ready, bankable infrastructure opportunities. PIDG delivers its pioneering infrastructure through three business lines that deploy a unique set of capabilities.
Upstream Technical Assistance
Our reconfigured IFC-PIDG/TA business will support the other PIDG businesses by providing support to project development and enabling transactions, improving the affordability and/or impact of projects through Viability Gap Funding (VGF), transaction advisory services, and piloting new programmatic initiatives.
Technical Assistance (TA)
TA plays a central role in enabling PIDG to initiate multi-company programmes and centrally-driven initiatives that are not specific to a particular company and that align with PIDG strategic objectives.
DevCo provides advisory services to governments in the poorer (DAC I and II) countries to help them structure transactions that facilitate private sector participation in infrastructure projects.

InfraCo Asia provides responsible leadership in bridging the infrastructure gap in south and south-east Asia.
